Kimani Smith caught his fair share of touchdown passes as a wide receiver at Cathedral Prep several years ago.
On Saturday, he scored the first touchdown of his college career on a pass. However, the pass came from the opposing quarterback.
Smith, a now 6-foot 3-inch, 220-pound sophomore linebacker at Robert Morris, returned an interception 31 yards for a touchdown — his first college score – Saturday while helping the Colonials to a 54-21 victory over Central Connecticut State.
Smith’s touchdown extended his team’s lead to 26-7 midway through the second quarter. It was his first career interception.
He also had five tackles in the game, giving him 34 for the season in his first season as a starter.
