Coach David Smart

Coach Smart will lead the Danes baseball program for year three of the program's history.  Setting the bar high during season one by taking his first year varsity squad all the way to the state title series, Smart has unfinished business.

Coach Smart came to Denmark from LaGrange High School, where he led the Grangers baseball squad to the 2017 "Final Four".  In his 26 years of coaching high school baseball, he has been fortunate to be a part of 10 State Championship series.  As a head coach, he helped lead Northside-Columbus to two back to back "Elite Eight" finishes in the State tournament.  As Coach Bobby Howard's top assistant, Smart was instrumental in the success of Columbus High School's dominance throughout the last two decades.  Coach Smart has  many years experience coaching high school level softball and serves as Denmark's head softball coach. He and his Lady Danes finished both 2019 and 2020 season with an impressive record and a 2019 State playoff appearance.

Coach Smart is married to Jessica Farrow Smart, who is also a Denmark teacher and Denmark Competition Cheer Coach.  They have 3 children, Carly (24), Callen (21), Andrew (6) and Robert Wayne "Row" Smart who was born July 2020!

" My greatest accomplishment and blessings is being a part of helping produce outstanding husbands, fathers, wives and mothers." - Coach Smart
