25 Days Until Purdue Football: Jake Smith

Yea, I know.

Big Ten is cancelled for the fall, I get it.

But, I had this post plan long before the announcement today, as I had an opportunity to be a part of this local walk-on’s journey for three of the last four years.

Name: Jake Smith

Position & Size: Wide Receiver. 6-3, 200 Pounds

Hometown: West Lafayette, IN (Harrison High School)
