Nate Smith

The success of the Temple football program has made a big impact on local recruiting. The Owls inked 27 players to national letters of intent. Fourteen of them are from Pennsylvania. Seven of Temple’s top recruits are from the Philadelphia area.

Steve Addazio, Temple head coach and his staff, have brought in some great local players such as Nate L. Smith (Archbishop Wood, defensive back) and Brandon Peoples (Archbishop Wood, running back), Damiere Shaw (Cardinal O’Hara, defensive back), Shakur Nesmith (Imhotep Charter, wide receiver), Terry Kiser (Neshaminy, defensive lineman), Brandon Shippen (Norristown) and Byran Osei (Abington, defensive lineman).
