From Siena College....
LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. – Just-in’Love Smith, a senior walk-on for the Siena men’s basketball team who served a tour in Iraq while stationed in Alaska with the US Military from 2003-2007, will be featured on ESPN2’s First Take shortly after 11 a.m. on Thursday, November 5.

Smith, a Sacramento native, moved cross-country to live with his sister and brother-in-law following an eventful childhood. He graduated from Columbia High School, where he excelled in basketball and football, and later attended Hudson Valley Community College for a year where he was a member of their basketball team averaging nearly nine points during the 2002-03 season.
Smith aspires to be a state trooper and work for the military border patrol. He also is involved with the campus theater program and aspires to be a stand-up comedian.
First Take is hosted by former SportsCenter personality Dana Jacobson and Jay Crawford, both of whom came over from Cold Pizza. Skip Bayless and a rotating guest analyst are featured during the "1st and 10" segments with hosts Crawford and Jacobson.
