Steve’s teams have been successful because of his propensity to develop the student-athlete’s mentality equally to their athletic skills. He equipped young men to advance socially, academically and athletically by challenging them with mentorship that would be life sustaining. It was very apparent to me from afar that Steve had a direct influence on each person’s growth and maturity...not just the very best player. Many of his players would not be where they are in their life without his tutelage and his desire to develop them as whole people and expand their vision.
Smith’s tenure as Baylor’s baseball boss has been marked by building the Bears into a Big 12 power, making almost perennial postseason appearances and elevating Baylor to the level of Texas and Texas A&M in its ability to recruit and develop top talent.
