Lee Roy Smith was born and raised in Oklahoma. An NCAA champion, world silver medalist and the first of the four famous Smith brothers, Smith grew up in the era where Bedlam was fierce. An eventual Cowboy at Oklahoma State, Smith now is the Executive Director of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. He'd spent time coaching on the international and collegiate level and speaks on the impact of Danny Hodge, the trophy and what he means, not only to wrestling, but to the state of Oklahoma.
The Dan Hodge Tribute Series will feature interviews from historian and author Mike Chapman, Lee Roy Smith of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, wrestling event promoter Jack Roller as well as professional wrestling legends and native Oklahomans Gerry Brisco and Jim Ross.
