Smoke was Skip's 3rd pick. And then only after he agreed to let Skip keep the camp money.
I think this quote from you would certainly indicate that Skip "picked" Laval. Remember, Skip was not yet the AD when this occurred. There is no question Skip put his successor in place. The fact that Skip kept the camp money further proves that Laval was hand picked.
