Grit Machine DNA: Brian Smith

by | Mar 23, 2022

On this episode of Grit Machine DNA I talk with Coach Brian Smith, who was a classmate of mine at Lynn Classical High School Brian’s journey has been nothing short of remarkable…from poverty in the streets of Lynn to one of America’s best high school football coaches, to fatherhood…Brian is a living testament of what faith, family, integrity and perseverance produce.

If you’re looking for inspiration from someone who has come from nothing and continues to inspire hundreds of kids every day, Brian is your guy! His message is to live by the 3 P’s of life: 

  1. Pride – be proud of who you are and where you’re from and be prideful in everything you do
  2. Passion – have grit, tenacity and determination to succeed at anything you do
  3. Poise – always have an understanding of circumstances and have poise under pressure

He currently serves as the Head Coach and Athletic director at C.E. Murray High School in South Carolina.  He is the winningest coach in school history and was recognized in 2015 as the statewide Coach of the year.  He is a husband, father, son and one of the most humble, kindest and hardest people I know.  I am proud to call him my friend. Meet Brian Smith on this episode of Grit Machine DNA.
