It seems like the perfect time to congratulate Stephen, MN native Craig Smith on helping lead the Colorado State Rams basketball team to the NCAA Tournament. Craig, an assistant coach, and his wife, Darcy, also a Stephen alumnus, have been in Fort Collins for five years. Rams Head Coach Tim Miles is well known in these parts. His career path has taken him from Mayville State to Southwest State in Marshall, Minnesota to North Dakota State and now Colorado State. And by his side for most of the ride has been Smith.
Craig was always a good kid from a great family. Back in the glory days of Stephen Tiger football, Craig and Bryce Lingen combined to make one of the all-time great student manager tandems in school history. Thinking back on it, it was obvious how much he loved being around sports and how much of a hard worker he was.
It’s easy to cheer for the good guys. Good luck Craig! And go Rams!
