    James Smith on SI.com

    Not the reason that you want to get on SI.com for, but SI did a photo gallery with Prominent Haitian-American Athletes and he was listed

    James Smith - former Iowa State safety - Prominent Haitian-Americans in Sports - Photos - SI.com

    Hope that he and his family are able to get in touch.

    Despite the unfortunate circumstances, very cool that SI recognized an ISU athlete with a unique background.

    Re: James Smith on SI.com

    In an article before this season, he had reunited with his family early last summer, this must be old, or he is trying to contact them again. I believe it was in the register, it was discussed on here also.

    The caption to the pic is in regards to him trying to contact his mom/family after the Haitian earthquake a few days ago. He did reconnect with his mom last summer, and is trying to make sure she is okay (she lived in Port-au-Prince, site of the quake) now but can't get any communication down there.
