A Whitehouse, Texas native, Smith makes his Pump Jacks debut this summer after helping Tyler Junior College to the NJCAA Division III World Series.

            Smith had a very good year for the Apaches overall, making 11 starts and 16 appearances overall, and going 7-3 with a 2.59 ERA, second-best on the team among starters. A mainstay in the Tyler rotation, Smith struck out 48 batters while walking just 19 in 55.2 innings, surrendering just 9 extra-base hits.

            In the playoffs this spring, his effort on the mound of 5.2 innings of shutout ball helped the Apaches clinch a berth in the NJCAA D-III World Series in an 11-1 win over Richland College.
