Chris Rutherford was a high school sports star who went on to college to write about sports. He also had a sports show on an Ohio radio station.
Now, the station and the local newspaper are reporting on Rutherford, an Army lieutenant killed in Iraq.
Rutherford put his journalism degree on hold to serve his country, and folks from his hometown, Newport, say the 25-year-old did it with a smile.
