Seniors Deshaun Thomas and Rod Smith are featured in a recent article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The Dec. 14 story is about the relationship between the two Ohio State-bound athletes from Fort Wayne.

Thomas is a guard/forward for Bishop Luers, and Smith is a running back for Harding.

The link between the two players, despite going to OSU to play different sports is addressed in the article by Ohio State beat writer Doug Lesmerises as well as their friendship and possible roommate status on the Columbus, Ohio campus.
