Ex-First Daughter Jenna Bush Hager interviewed Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith in a segment that aired this morning on NBC’s Today Show. It was a heartwarming story about our rookie Raven.
I’m glad I caught it. Torrey had tweeted last week when Jenna was at the Ravens headquarters: “Just finished an interview for the Today Show with @JennaBushHager …She is so down to earth.”
Torrey shared with Jenna about growing up as the oldest brother of six siblings in a single-parent household. “I was trying to be a good role model for them,” he said in the interview. His mother Monica said he would fix bowls of cereal for the kids among other caretaking duties while she worked two jobs.
One of his brothers also chimed in. “He’s humble, kind, an all-around good person.”
The whole family will be gathering for Christmas at Torrey’s Baltimore home, according to Jenna.
