MALLETT SMILE: Captured in high school.
  • MALLETT SMILE: Captured in high school.
Just in time for Hog football in Little Rock, the New York Times profiles quarterback Ryan Mallett. The writer likes his smile as well as his arm.

College football is littered with quarterbacks who transfer and find their new destination just as unfulfilling. Changing universities could have been a cheerless path, too, for Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett, but he had something to go along with his immense skill: his smile.

Mallett left Michigan after a coaching change and enrolled at Arkansas, where there had also been a coaching change. It seemed like a sure career trap.

But Mallett, a 6-foot-7 junior, still has the gleaming smile he left home with after high school three and a half years ago.

“He’s a happy kid,” said his father, Jim Mallett, a middle school teacher and high school football coach in Texarkana, Ark.
