Orange football coach Van Smith talks coaching in the East/West All-Star Game

Updated: July 18, 2019

Coaching in the East/West All-Star Game doesn’t mean just showing up on the night of the game and shouting instructions from the sidelines. For Orange Coach Van Smith, who served as an assistant for the East, it’s been a full week. It all started last Thursday and continued right until the end of Wednesday night, when the East defeated the West 20-8. Smith was selected last summer by the North Carolina Coaches Association to the All-Star Game. He’s no stranger to coaching All-Star games. He also coached in the Shrine Bowl in 2016. Now that his All-Star experience is over, Smith heads back to Orange to continue preparations for 2019 next week. A special youth camp is scheduled for Orange High.
