David Smith

Athletic Training. Recruiting. Consulting.

STATUS' mission is to not only develop, train and consult, but  more importantly,  to give back.  The best way  I know to do this is through using the wisdom that I have acquired through my involvement with great athletic mentors and the network of coaches I have worked with throughout the last 40 years.  Peace of mind priceless, and is the fundamental component for happiness.  This peace can be achieved through knowing the help you are receiving is from a respected and qualified mentor.  The STATUS team has very diversified background and extensive knowledge that is available for athletes of all ages to take advantage of and utilize.  Let us guide you down a pathway that will lead you.  We believe the  life skills that athletics can instill, are not only valuable, but never ending.
