1988 Media Guide: Dwight Smith is a fifth-year senior … has been used in a backup role throughout his career, but emerged from spring drills as a starter … has quick reactions and is a hard hitter … dedicated to making this his best year.
1987: Played a total of 28 minutes in 10 games and had eight tackles … five of those tackles came at Purdue, where he played 18 of the 28 minutes he logged in 1987.
1986: Played in seven games as a reserve safety and had 10 tackles with one pass break up.
1986 Media Guide: Can play various positions in the secondary, but figures to be used as a top replacement at one of the corner positions … hit hard for his size and is a sure tackler … has good speed and quick reactions, vital qualities for a defensive back.
1985: Saw limited action in four games, chiefly with the specialty teams.
1985 Media Guide: Can play anywhere in the secondary but likely will be used as a safety behind Terry White … has good speed, quick reactions and is a sure tackler, all vital ingredients for playing the secondary … one of six members of the Buckeye squad from Middletown, including three in his high school class of 1984.
High School: Was a standout on two good Middletown football and basketball teams … played in the North-South All-Star Game … played fullback on offense and safety on defense.
Personal: From a family of five.
