Vincent Smith once coached Tucson High and a professional women’s football team in Tucson. He is a behemoth of a man (6’6″ and 368 pounds) with a big heart to match his size. He works as an educator within the Los Angeles Unified School District. He transferred to Arizona in 1990 after his freshman season at Colorado, which was a power in the Big 12 at the time.
“My greatest memory of the rivalry was my first game in 1990 after transferring from Colorado. I had to watch as a spectator the year before and I was jacked sky high to be a part of this one. I remember the elation I felt when Bobby Roland picked off Paul Justin to seal the victory. The stadium went ballistic. That was my introduction to the rivalry live on stage and I loved it.”
