Former NFL, XFL Running Back Rod Smart Missing



Former NFL and XFL running back Rod Smart, who was known for his nickname ‘He Hate Me’ during his time with the original launch of the XFL, is missing.

According to ESPN, police in South Carolina have put out a missing person advisory for Smart, saying that he was last seen Wednesday in Indian Land, South Carolina.

“It is unusual for him to be out of touch for this long,” police stated in the advisory. “Mr. Smart’s family is worried about his safety and well-being.”

Smart, 42, played for the Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers during his NFL career, and was one of the most famous players during the original launch of the XFL during 2001.

The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information about Smart’s whereabouts to call (803) 283-3388.
