We feel like he will work well with Mr. Petrey in successfully guiding our athletic programs.”

Smith has been involved with coaching youth and travel sports for the past decade and has spent the past two years as a coach for LCMS baseball. Along with coaching, he is a broadcaster for WPBK-FM, covering Lincoln County athletics and promotes all athletics through his position at the school through social media and other media outlets.

“I’m very excited about this opportunity. Lincoln County sports are a passion of mine and have been a huge part of my life ever since I was old enough to walk. I care about the students, the families, and our community. I will do whatever it takes to see LC succeed,” said Smith. “I want to continue to promote our kids and build good relationships with young kids in the county. They are the future and I think it is important that we invest in the future. My hope is to establish strong feeder programs for all sports and to continue to promote all of the great things we are doing here in Lincoln County.”

Smith and his wife Lee Ann live in Lincoln County along with their three children Jack, Brayden, and Rebecca. He is an elder at Moreland Christian Church and is the Chairman of HOPE 53 Ministries.
