This summer Smithfield Selma 6 foot 7 inch senior basketball player Josh Raiford signed a National Letter of Intent to continue playing basketball at the next level for Lincoln Trail College.

Josh was a four year letter winner for Smithfield Selma High in addition to a three year starter.

“I chose to attend and play basketball for Lincoln Trail College because of the education that they will be offering me and the great coaching staff and player development process that they have in place,” Raiford said. “Those things can help me develop as a basketball player and as a young man. It’s a blessing to have the opportunity to play basketball in college for free. God is Good.”

Matt Cuddington, Varsity Men’s Basketball Coach at Smithfield Selma High said, “This is an excellent opportunity for Josh to grow as a basketball player and as a young man. Josh has the size and the skill set to be successful on the next level. The coaching staff, players in the program, and SSS community are extremely proud and happy for him.”

Lincoln Trail is a junior college located in Robinson, Illinois.
