When I interviewed Alex Smith years ago in his home for What is Philanthropy? concerning his philanthropic foundation I knew he was a special person. His recent comeback after a life threatening injury in 2018 was recently profiled on 60 Minutes. I highly recommend you watch this video.

You’ll agree that it is a story of strength, will, perseverance and immense character. He will inspire you. You might just become a fan of Alex Smith, like I am, not just for his play on the football field but for him as a human being.
