GLENS FALLS — In a land of giants, Morgan Smith stands out.

Not just for being the smallest player on the field for the Glens Falls Greenjackets, but for her sheer determination as a woman playing semipro football.

Smith, all 5 feet, 3 inches of her, is the rookie placekicker for the Greenjackets. She is believed by league and team officials to be the first female to play in the Empire Football League.

“I love it, I can’t get enough of football,” Smith said at practice earlier this week at Glens Falls High School. “I just love the camaraderie and the sport of football itself, it’s just unparalleled.”
