COULD be the same Lyle Smith who played football and basketball at the University of Idaho. Newspaper articles reporting on the Fircrests say a "Lyle Smith" plays for the team who went to Eastern Washington, but he does not appear on the EWU all-time roster. UI's Lyle Smith is from Steptoe, Washington, which is in the eastern-most counties of Washington and a mere 40 miles apart. Bellingham's player was a 6'3 forward.
