When Miami High takes the field this evening (7:00) against Miami Norland at Traz Powell Stadium, it will be the fourth time this year that they have done it without head coach Corey Smith.
The tragic death of the one-time Miami High standout football player hit this community hard – and two months later – it is no easier to deal with.
For what Smith meant to Miami High and all of south Florida, finding the strength to carry on his legacy is what everyone who knew him continues to do.
When he took over his alma mater last year, the plans that Smith had was to get this program back into the spotlight – where he and so many other enjoyed playing for this legendary program.
With wins over Miami Jackson and Southwest Miami, this is a program that continue to honor a coach who’s life was cut short – way before he had the chance to see his school move back to the top.
Head Coach Wendol Philord and his assistant coaches – along with the players and fans have dedicated the season to Smith – as they vowed to continue to grow and mature, getting Miami High back in the mix.
This season – because of Covid – the Stingarees are playing in the Tri County Championships – where they are looking to play well, laying the foundation for the future.
