Appomattox Co. football coach Doug Smith speaks in Lynchburg
LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) - The coach who's turned Appomattox football into a state powerhouse spoke Monday night to the Lynchburg Sports Club.
Doug Smith has guided Appomattox to three straight state championships. The Raiders' overall record the past three seasons, an incredible 44 wins and 1 loss. The titles are great, but Smith says his biggest fulfillment is having a positive impact on his players' lives.
Doug Smith, 6-YEAR APPOMATTOX CO. FOOTBALL COACH, said "Doing extra things with these kids, the FCA camps, the service projects. You know those kids getting involved in those things I think really goes a long way. It helps our kids to be better people and, you know, the better people they are, the better teams they create. It's, I think, a recipe for greatness."
