Trainer's Day

By Jerry Sullivan

NEW ORLEANS -- Corey Graham won't be the only Western New Yorker getting a Super Bowl ring for the Ravens. Mark Smith, who grew up in Lewiston and graduated from Lewiston-Porter High, is Baltimore's head trainer.  

Smith, one of the longest-tenured trainers in the NFL, has been with the Ravens franchise for 28 years. He has been head trainer since the spring of 2011, when long-time trainer Bill Tessendorf retired. Tessendorf had been with the franchise for 38 seasons.
