Salt Lake Tribune - Smith gives back to the Utes

Salt Lake Tribune - Smith gives back to the Utes: "Ever since his whirlwind departure two years ago, quarterback Alex Smith knew he wanted to do 'something major' to express his gratitude to the university that launched him into a multi-million-dollar career in the NFL.
And now that he has, the Utah Utes are hoping others follow his example.
By committing Monday to donate $500,000 to help pay for an expansion of the university's athletics weight room, Smith not only broadened the legacy he built for himself by guiding the Utes to their greatest season and then becoming the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, but potentially opened the door to a new era of charitable giving by his fellow football players - none of whom has ever made such a gesture."
