Devon Still's girlfriend Channing Smythe, 4.2 out of 10 based on 19 ratings
- Devon Still is likely to be first round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, but his journey to the podium hasn't always been easy.
After battling his way through an injury plagued start to his career missing both the 2007 and bulk of the 2008 seasons due to injury. And no one can forget the 2011-2012 season for Penn State which overshadowed the end of Still's career in Happy Valley.
Fortunately for Still, he's finally found motivation and focus to keep him from being distracted. Still and his longtime girlfriend Channing Smythe became parents to a girl in April, 2010. Lehsari who goes by Leah, provides Still the inspiration to excel and walk on stage with the commissioner next week and he says as much in an interview with the Sun Gazette:
"That [Leah] was my main motivation, my biggest motivation just to know that I'm playing for her livelihood. I wasn't going to let nobody go out there and stop me from being able to provide for my daughter."
Still also acknowledges that none of his success happens without his girlfriend Channing Smythe helping to take care of Leah at home and during the season, home meant at a small off campus apartment. There's not much else known about Channing, though we fully expect to see her in the green room with Still next Thursday night. By then, we hope to have some pictures to share with you.
