BATON ROUGE - Leonard Smith will have his big honor in early 2015, but for tonight, the soon-to-be college football hall-of-famer enjoyed a celebration in Baton Rouge as he was honored by friends and colleagues for his accomplishment. 

Smith went to Lee High school before earning 1st team All-America honors at McNeese state in 1982. 

Smith was the 17th overall draft pick in the 1983 draft, and went on to have a successful career with the St. Louis/Phoenix Cardinals and Buffalo Bills. 

Smith will be formally enshrined in the College football hall of fame in January 2015.
