He also served as the Camp Director for the Northern Virginia Volleyball Association in the summer of 2012.
A 2007 graduate of Appalachian State with a bachelor’s degree in recreation management, Smith worked with the volleyball team as a student assistant in 2006 and 2007. In his first season, Smith worked with current Eagle Head Coach Chad Callihan, assisting with daily practices. While at ASU, he was the men’s club volleyball captain and president all four years and earned all-conference accolades at outside hitter three times.
While attending Herndon High School, Smith was a four-year varsity wrestling lettermen and district champion.

He played Junior Olympic volleyball for one season with Metro Virginia 18’s.
Smith still participates in highly-competitive grass and sand doubles volleyball tournaments along the East coast and plays adult USAV with a team in the Chesapeake Region.
