DeWayne Minor

DeWayne Minor, now a horse trainer in Florida, became the first African-American driver in the richest event in harness racing, the Hambletonian, back in 2000. The race is equivalent to the likes of what The Kentucky Derby is to Grade I stakes racing. Joining Friday's Current Sports with Al Martin, Minor talks about taking pride in helping pave the way for other minorities in the sport.

Current Sports host Al Martin gives his thoughts on the Michigan State win over Maryland this past Saturday, which made the program bowl eligible for the 12th time in 13 seasons under head coach Mark Dantonio. But, how much is the accomplishment really worth and how soon can the Spartans be a legit competitor in the Big Ten East? That, and more, in this segment!
