BARBOURVILLE, Ky. - On the heels of his record-setting performance, Union senior running back Armond Smith landed a spot in Sports Illustrated's "Faces in the Crowd" section.
Smith (Stone Mountain, Ga.) is among six persons featured in the October 18 edition.

For his effort, Smith was named the Mid-South Conference Offensive Player of the Week, the NAIA Offensive Player of the Week and the Victory Sports Network Offensive Player of the Week.
