Former Philadelphia Eagle and at-least part-time Conshohocken resident Torrey Smith announced this morning that he is retiring from professional football. Smith is married to Conshohocken-native and Plymouth Whitemarsh High School graduate Chanel Smith. They met at the Unversity of Maryland, where he played football and she ran track.
Smith played for the Eagles during its 2017-18 Super Bowl-winning season and generated a lot of additional excitement locally due to his being in the community. For example, he held an event at Conshy Corner Tavern and allowed people to take a picture with it for a donation to the Conshohocken Electric Force (a local youth track team his wife and him help coach).
In the below video, he makes the announcement and thanks football for the things it has taught and provided him. At the close of the video Smith states he is returning to Baltimore to begin the next chapter of his life.
