Harvey Hits Home To Lovie Smith
As he prepares for Saturday’s game against Ball State, U of I football head coach Lovie Smith has his mind on his home town in Texas.
Smith grew up in Big Sandy, Texas, about four hours north of Houston. Big Sandy is feeling the brunt of Hurricane Harvey.
The coach still has family in that area, and he says people in Texas need spiritual and material help.
“If it’s just prayer, fine. If you donate money that would be good too," Smith said. "Anything we can do to help."
Coach Smith has been in contact with some of his relatives in Texas. He said his family is safe, but he added the situation is changing all the time.
