And Greenport’s fans gave an indication of how appreciative they are to have him back playing for the Porters less than two months after he was shot in the abdomen Dec. 7. Smiley said the bullet struck his colon and liver. It looked like the 6-3 forward’s senior season was done for sure, but he was happy to be alive. READ
