Jarrid Smith

Jarrid Smith was featured on Sun Sport REC warehouse Kick-off show yesterday, nice little segment very similar to the one Marcus Nelson did on him in the Post earlier in the season.

Interesting how The Owl was and is a concern for him and his heritage as a Seminole Indian, glad he was able to find a way to overcome this and be an Owl anyway.

Always good to get some air time on these TV shows, I have E-Mailed SunSports on what a nice feature this was.

It was a very interesting piece. Maybe we should change the mascot to the Hawks might have better support from the native American community - Joking. I didn't realize the Owl was such a negative symbol to the native American families.

It was also good positive exposure for FAU throughout the state. If a kid like Smith decides to go to a school that has negative implications to his beliefs but comes anyway that says a lot for Schnelly, the program and his vision and trust.
