Big Green culminates 2018-19 season with 41st annual dinner, HERDSPY’s awards

Marshall’s annual Big Green Dinner and HERDSPY’s awards celebration took place Friday evening with 10 people and plays honored as award winners. Former Marshall Football player and current Oakland Raiders tight end Lee Smith was the guest speaker at the event.

“That ‘M’ is special and that green will hang in my house till the day I die and I will always be thankful for this place but the most special thing about this place is the people,” Smith said.

Smith’s father played at the University of Tennessee and he knew from the start that he wanted to be there.
