Smith, a senior guard on the men’s basketball team, formed Tanner’s Totes when he was 12 years old with the intent of giving teenagers and pre-teens undergoing long-term illness treatments a reason to smile through the delivery of large tote bags filled with goodie items. The organization has been profiled by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, CBS, and HGTV since he signed his letter-of-intent with Clemson in the fall of 2007.

ABC and Koops Production crews spent time filming with Smith and his family in his hometown of Alpharetta, GA in August. The crew was on hand for a charity fundraiser at his high school, Wesleyan, where an estimated $6,500 was raised for Tanner’s Totes. NBA players Gani Lawal and Trey Thompkins were also at the event to help raise money. The crew also spent time filming Smith and his parents, Craig and Kathy, delivering tote bags to patients at Children’s Healthcare at Atlanta’s Scottish Rite Hospital.
