Vince Evans, the former Smith High School star, played professional football from 1977 to 1995. A “prep phenom” who ran the single-wing at Smith, Vince would go on to play quarterback at the University of Southern California, where he won the MVP award at the 1977 Rose Bowl. Evans passed for 9,485 yards in his NFL career and ran for more than 1,000 yards. Evans was drafted in the sixth round (140th overall pick) by the Chicago Bears and was the only player for the Chicago Bears to score a perfect quarterback rating in a game. Evans played three seasons in the USFL, the Chicago Blitz and Denver Golf, before finishing his career as a member of the Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders from 1987-1995.
