“ To the Smith family - I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Lance. I had the privilege to recruit Lance and serve as his baseball coach at Mississippi College. I will always remember him for his competitive nature and desire to win. He was an ultimate team player and most important a really good person.
Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of sorrow. The most rewarding thing in coaching and teaching is association with young men like Lance. ”
