During his free time, Louisville senior guard Russ Smith has been interning for WHAS11. When you’re the leading scorer on the defending national championship team, it’s hard to unnoticed when you’re working behind the scenes.
Russ has been spotted on the sideline of UofL football games doing camera work for the Louisville ABC affiliate and also helping out with some of the stations local shows. Last week Russ got his first opportunity to some live sports reporting.
On Friday night he reported live from the New Albany vs. Jeffersonville football game and on Saturday’s weekly edition of “The Strong Side,” Russ interviewed UofL swimmer Juan Lopez. Here is the video from Russ’ sports casting debut.
