Side note on Jeremis Smith

Check out this article about Smith's punishment from his high school basketball coach:

Hughes said Jeremis Smith, Jeffrey Muriel, and Marcus Samuels, three Dunbar players who were arrested Oct. 6 on misdemeanor theft charges, are practicing with the team and have been punished with extra conditioning drills.

"Those three guys will be the most well-conditioned athletes in the state of Texas, and probably all could qualify if there were tryouts for the marathon at the next Olympics," Hughes said.

Lastly, Smith has been writing an online journal for the Dallas Star-Telegram. Here was his entry from Monday this week.
