Former Syracuse linebacker Derrell Smith was at the center of Syracuse’s turnaround in the Doug Marrone era. Derrell was the defensive captain of the 2010 team that won the Pinstripe Bowl against Kansas State, and after being named twice to the All Big East team, had a two-year career in the NFL.
In the time since then, Derrell has become the owner and CEO of 99EATS, a food company with a goal of connecting people through food and experiences. His cooking has been featured at the Barclays Center, Smorgasburg in Brooklyn, and also a video series at Bed, Bath and Beyond. 99EATS has also partnered with a variety of brands, including Hennessy, Hot97, and Tastemade.
Derrell joined me this week on The Juice on the Cuse podcast to talk about how he become a famous chef, social justice, his Syracuse playing days, and the current team. Among the highlights includes his take on current linebacker Mikel Jones (“that boy’s a dog”), advice for the current team (“just get better each week”), and his key sack against Rutgers that sent SU to bowl season in 2010.
Editor in chief Brad Bierman then joins me to talk about Syracuse football’s first win of the season against Georgia Tech. The defense was on point with four interceptions, and the offense showed signs of life behind true freshman running back Sean Tucker’s two touchdown day.
Brad closes the show by talking about two Syracuse alums big weekends in the NFL, while I talk about former Syracuse star Dion Waiters ending a 40-year NBA finals drought for the Orange.
