Now he's moving to Montreal and takes some comfort in the fact he knows Impact captain Davy Arnaud.

"I trained with him in Kansas City while he was still their captain and he's the cousin of one of my former teammates at New Mexico so I'm excited to get their and play with him and those guys," Smith said in a Friday morning 1-on-1 interview from his home in Boerne, Texas, a rural community outside of San Antonio.
