Newspaper Feature on Former UMaine Football Star

The Suffolk Times of New York profiled former UMaine football and track star Carl Smith, who now lives in Saco with his family, including wife Lori, who ran cross country for the Black Bears. Smith told the newspaper, which included him in its series of the greatest athletes from its coverage area, that being at UMaine in the late 1980s and early 1990s allowed him to grow, and the people at the school took to him like he was one of their own. The profile also notes that Sports Illustrated reported at the time on the NFL scouts who visited Orono at the time to watch Smith and quarterback Mike Buck.
