Gideon Smith

Here is a link to a great piece by sportswriter Steve Grinczel on the life and legacy of Gideon Smith, the first African-American football player in Michigan State history, and only the third African-American football player in college football history. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Smith's gridiron debut with the M.A.C. Aggies. This is an extremely well-written and well-researched article. Enjoy!
