Wednesday afternoon, Billerica goalie D.J. Smith signed his National letter of Intent to make official his plans to continue his playing career for Coach Greg Cannella at the University of Massachusetts.
Smith’s career began during his freshman year when he took over for injured starter Chris Pena, leading the Indians to a record of 20-3 and the Div. 1 state semifinals where the team battled eventual state champion Duxbury to a 13-12 game.
Smith has been entrenched between the Billerica pipes ever since, producing a 0.62 save percentage as a sophomore while leading Billerica to another 20-win campaign and another trip to the state semis before again running into Duxbury.

As a junior, Smith was named a team captain and upped his save percentage to 66% while the team suffered through several key injuries en route to a 16-6 season and a trip to the quarterfinal round before succumbing to Lincoln-Sudbury.
Smith was named Most Valuable Player of the Merrimack Valley Conference and earned the honor of being the inaugural goalie selected for the Boston Lax Division 1 All-State team. In three years, Smith has totaled 612 saves
