Fireballer Connor Smith Off To Texas
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Friday, March 5, 2010
Right handed pitcher Connor Smith has earned a scholarship at Weatherford College in Texas (NJCAA D1).

The Coyotes play in the highly competative Region 5 conference in the state of Texas. It is also considered one of the top JC conferences in the country. In 2008 the Coyotes advanced to the 4th round of the regional tournament. Armed with a 90+ mph fastball and a relentless work ethic Connor will certainly be a welcome addition to the Weatherford pitching staff. Thus far in his career as a Terrier Connor has had several highlights. Starting last fall, he threw five shutout innings vs Lafleshe College on Labour Day weekend. He followed that up with a win in his start at the Brawl in the Fall Tournament in Guelph. Three more impressive innings came at Niagara University vs the Purple Eagles (NCAA D1). Connor capped off the 2009 fall season with a no hitter at the University of West Alabama! Not one to rest on his laurels or take anything for granted, as soon as the fall season ended, Connor went right to work in the weight room. He did a tremendous job over the winter with his strength and conditioning and reported back in January prepared and ready to ramp up for the 2010 season. It got started early for him this past weekend when he threw an excellent bullpen in front of several pro scouts at the winter MLB Bureau camp. Connor will be studying science and math, working toward an Associates Degree in Science at Weatherford. When he is not in the classroom, he'll be playing his home games at Roger Williams Ballpark. The complex is known as one of the finest JC facilities in the United States. It is decked out with an expansive clubhouse, a conference/video room, training room and coaches offices. The Coyotes locker room includes a big screen tv and ping pong table. There are also covered hitting and pitching tunnels adjacent to the clubhouse. The Terriers extend their congratulations to Connor and his family and look forward to his ongoing future accomplishments.
