Less than two months since stepping down from his post at University Heights Academy, Mike Smith has been hired as boys’ soccer coach at Todd County Central High School. Smith was 76-74-19 over 8 seasons with the Blazers, winning the 2nd Region championship in 2011.
Smith inherits a Rebel team coming off an 0-14 season in coach Colby Bicksler’s only season. The Rebels were extremely young in 2018, with 15 underclassmen on the roster. The program’s last winning season was 2014, with an 8-7-1 mark under coach Josh Watkins.
Smith said about the new position, “I have been blessed with the opportunity to contribute to the lives of others through the game of soccer for most of my life and I’m very thankful and humbled I get to continue this work at Todd County Central High School, a place I could tell right away I’m going to be happy to call ‘home.’ I can’t wait to get started.”
