Former XFL Star, "He Hate Me" missing; Police asking for help

Former XFL Star,

Police in SC have put out a missing person advisory for former Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers running back Rod Smart.

Rod Smart, best known for his time in the XFL when he wore the "He Hate Me" nickname on the back of his jersey, has been missing for nearly a week and police are asking for help to find him.

Anyone who knows where Smart is is urged to call the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office at 803-283-3388.

Smart, 42, spent five years in the NFL. He played with the Eagles for one season and the Panthers for four, mostly as a kick returner and special teams player.

He was best known following a run in the XFL, a 2001 startup professional football league owned by World Wrestling Entertainment owner Vince McMahon. He did not appear in a game, though, and the next year he made his claim to fame by playing in the XFL's inaugural season with "He Hate Me" on the back of his jersey.

Smart came to the Panthers, where he wore his given name, from the XFL and other stops in 2002.

Lancaster deputies posted this Facebook message describing Smart as a "missing endangered person". He is believed to be driving his silver 2016 Nissan Maxima with North Carolina tag PJR 1759.
