02/26/2012 5:37 PM - JACKSONVILLE - The ArenaBowl XXIV Champion Jacksonville Sharks announced Sunday that WR/DB Terrance Smith has been activated from the Arena Football League's "refused to report" list.

The 25-year-old Smith (6’2, 195) is set to begin his second season with the Sharks and in the AFL. He played in 16 games during the 2011 regular season, finishing tied for second on the team with six interceptions. Smith proved to be dangerous with the ball in his hands, returning two of those interceptions for touchdowns. The only Shark to record multiple “pick-sixes” in 2011, Smith returned a fumble for a touchdown as well.

Smith finished the year with 65.5 total tackles and 51 solo tackles, ranking third on the team in both categories. He added 16.5 tackles and tied for the team lead with seven pass breakups in the Sharks’ three playoff games.

Before coming to Jacksonville, Smith played wide receiver at South Carolina State, where he caught 40 passes for 542 yards and four touchdowns as a senior in 2009. He also spent time with the Green Bay Packers prior to the 2010 NFL season. Smith is a native of Aiken, SC.
