Smoak earlier was named an NJCAA Division I first-team All-American along with teammate, classmate and fellow defender Wilfred Williams.

Williams scored a goal and recorded an assist but his main contributions were moving to the vital center back position when teammates were injured and marking opponent’s top strikers.

Both played in all 19 games as the Titans advanced to the NJCAA Division I Men’s Championship semifinal round for the first time, finishing 15-2-2.
