Smith was knocked unconscious. After coming to, she was carefully loaded onto a backboard and transported to a local hospital, where she was treated and released. Herrien and quarterback Jake Fromm were among the Georgia players who reached out to her.
Back in action for the first time since, Smith said she was anxious about being back on the sidelines today. She said she’ll probably even shoot from her knees, as she was doing that day.
“A lot of times that’s a better angle when you get a little lower,” Smith said. “I think it’s just making sure that you’re super aware of your surroundings. That’s the most important thing if you’re on your feet or your knees. You’ll see a lot of photographers doing that today.”
