Meet the Geico commercial star who played football at Iowa State.
AMES, Iowa — Iowa State football fans may recognize the Zeus-like male model appearing in one of the more memorable Geico commercials.
It’s former Cyclones football player Sean Riley Smith, who was on the Iowa State football team from 2006-2010 and is now trying to make it big in acting.
“I’ve booked several print campaigns since that,” Smith said of the commercial. “It really just kind of puts a name to the face.”
