Me being from Pike County, Illinois I love to see Pike County kids do well, and here is a prime example.

Boe and Blake Smith signed their national letters of intent to play football at Culver-Stockton College. They are best friends off the field, which means there is a certain comfort factor. Communication is so huge up front in college football and to get twins who will hopefully be playing next to each other and have that sense of what the other one is doing is huge for the Culver-Stockton College football program.

The Smith Brothers join an impressive recruiting class, especially in the trenches. They both are back in the weight room so they can make an immediate impact  at Culver- Stockton. Congratulations to Boe and Blake Smith who should do well on the hill.
