Russ Smith's national championship jersey lost by FedEx

Russ Smith has a major beef with FedEx after the shipping giant allegedly threw away and lost the national championshp jersey he was presented with on Senior Night at the University of Louisville.

The All-American and NBA hopeful took to Twitter Friday night to slam FedEx and to share his bad experience with others. Here's more on the story from WHAS 11:

The framed jersey was shipping via FedEx to his New York barber shop, but when it arrived the glass and frame were cracked.

FedEx told Smith to send the entire package back, jersey included. The shipping company admitted it was mistakenly thrown away and is lost. 

Erin Truxal with FedEx gave a statement about the possibility that the jersey was stolen when it arrived back in Louisville. 

“"We are working closely with security to further investigate this matter. The damaged merchandise was marked to discard since, for safety precautions, our employees are trained not to open packages with broken glass. We sincerely apologize to Mr. Smith for his recent experience. We are working directly with Mr. Smith on this matter,” the statement said. 
A local businessman and Cardinals supporter, Jonathan Blue, is offering a $3,000 reward (no questions asked) for the immediate return of the jersey to Blue's office located in downtown Louisville.
Here's top hoping Smith's lost jersey turns up.
