Former NFL Quarterback, 2020 Comeback Player of the Year
Alex Smith was the #1 overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. In his 14th season, he suffered a life-threatening injury to his right leg that nearly resulted in amputation. Although he was expected to never play again, he completed a lengthy rehabilitation process and started as quarterback in 2020, leading Washington to an NFC East division title and earning the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award. He retired after his incredible recovery, regarded as one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history. Alex has become a leader in the sports community, a recognized TED talk speaker, and ESPN Monday Night Football Analyst. Smith is now a UCAN investor, ambassador and part of our Fitness Advisory Board.
