PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL, July 11, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- According to Gary Cohn
, founder of Play to Win
, Hunter Smith gave his commitment to Coach Murphy and William & Mary. According to Cohn, "Hunter is one of those players who comes around so infrequently. Certainly, he is a gifted ball player, but just as importantly, he is an excellent student."
Hunter Smith, a 2015 Catcher from New Jersey, selected William & Mary over some incredible schools. Schools from the Ivy League, past super regional participants, and others were all involved in courting Smith. "Each of the schools that showed their interest in Hunter were first class in the way they handled their approach. It's a tribute to the kind of young man Hunter is and his parents," says Cohn. Play to Win
has been working with great student-athletes for some time and Hunter Smith's humility was that "sixth" tool that many college coaches seek.
Ed Graziano of the NJ Marlins
travel baseball organization added, "Hunter never took a play off. He never forgot to be a great teammate. He is an absolute leader who demonstrates what he can do both on and off the field. I am extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to coach Hunter. Young men like him just don't come around very often."
Play to Win
focuses on the right opportunities for their athletes based on the ideal mix of athletics and academics. "Play to Win couldn't be happy for the entire Smith family. Hunter's tireless efforts not only paid off for him, but should be an example for all aspiring student-athletes to follow," concludes Cohn
