1 Playing statistics correct to end of 1998 season.
Originally from the Ainslie Football Club in the Australian Capital Territory, but recruited from Werribee and debuting in the Australian Football League in 1987, Smith is best known for his incredible leap and ability to take spectacular marks or speckies.
By far Smith's most successful and consistent season was at the Melbourne Football Club in 1995.
His 1995 Mark of the Year, a chest mark over teammate Garry Lyon in the goalsquare against the Brisbane Bears at the Gabba, was named the Mark of the Century, superseding Gary Ablett Sr's famous, though controversial mark a year earlier. In the same year he managed a career best 51 goals.
