Gaylord’s Smith Commits to Alma College
GAYLORD – Gaylord senior student-athlete Kenny Smith committed to Alma College and its wrestling program on Tuesday.
Wrestling at 160 pounds this past winter, Smith helped lead Gaylord to its first MHSAA Division 2 team state final appearance, where it fell to four-time defending state champion Lowell.
“It (wrestling) teaches you respect for your elders and how to overcome adversity because you have to watch what you eat and you have to learn how to lose graciously and learn everything from losing,” Smith said.
Smith plans to study biology and chemistry at Alma. He joins a young NCAA Division III program that graduated only three seniors this past season.
