KSU FOOTBALL | John L. Smith excited for second season with Thorobreds

The Kentucky State football team won the SIAC western division in its first year under head coach John L. Smith, and as he enters year two, the standards are set even higher.

The Thorobreds are picked to finish third in standings this season, but after a year of overachieving, coach Smith says his players are hungry for an outright conference championship.

Sports Night producer Garrett Moore spoke with Coach Smith, and Smith says he is happy to see the progress his players and program are making.
