The Emergence of Ryan Smith

Just like Gainer the Gopher popping out of his hole near Parkberg, Saskatchewan, Ryan Smith is coming out and showing everyone what he can do.

Many in Rider Nation are calling Smith “Dressler 2.0” and he’s well on his way to living up to that mantra. Dressler and Smith are pretty much the exact same size; the only difference is that Weston outweighs Ryan by *four pounds*. They both played their college ball in North Dakota (albeit at rival schools), and Ryan Smith is proving to be a great complement to Dressler in the Roughrider offense.

Smith had *everyone* going crazy after this incredible circus catch in the fourth quarter in Sunday’s loss to the Argonauts:

Smith didn’t see the field too much in 2014 when he caught 13 balls for 159 yards, but this season he already has two touchdowns in as many games including an explosion on Sunday during which he made eight grabs for 174 yards.

Go grab him in your fantasy league if you can! Ryan Smith is poised to give us many more “OMG” moments this season and beyond.
