Super Bowl champion Trey Smith, Chiefs, enjoy atmosphere at Allen Fieldhouse

Allen Fieldhouse, home of the Kansas Jayhawks, is widely known for having one of the best atmospheres in all of sports. The 16,300 fans who fill in the bleachers in The Phog make for an unforgettable college basketball experience. The reputation of Allen Fieldhouse attracts many prominent visitors from across the country, and fresh off an AFC Championship victory, members of the Kansas City Chiefs were in attendance during the Jayhawks’ 83-54 win over Oklahoma State on Jan. 30.

Eight members of the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line, including the starting five, were in the student section dancing during the Jayhawks’ dominant performance over Big 12 rival Oklahoma State. The group included center Creed Humphrey, left guard Joe Thuney, right guard Trey Smith, left tackle Donovan Smith, right tackle Jawaan Taylor, left tackle Wanya Morris, center Austin Reiter and guard Mike Caliendo.

Trey Smith, starting right guard for the Kansas City Chiefs, was one of the players enjoying the Allen Fieldhouse experience. Smith, who was drafted by the Chiefs in 2020, has become a key piece of an offensive line that has helped lead the Chiefs to back-to-back Super Bowls.

Leading up to Super Bowl LVIII, Trey Smith shared his thoughts on the atmosphere at Allen Fieldhouse.

“It was raucous man. I love Allen Fieldhouse,” Smith said.

He continued by saying that he grew up watching Tennessee women’s basketball, coached by the late Hall of Fame coach Pat Summitt, and going to Thompson-Boling Arena. Smith mentioned how he was accustomed to watching high-level basketball, and that Allen Fieldhouse was a must-see destination.

 “Allen Fieldhouse is one of those spots that I wanted to hit, and it did not disappoint. Man, what an environment that was. It was so much fun,” Smith concluded.
