NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Legendary track and field coach Sam Smith held his 23rd Annual Track and Field Clinic Saturday at Pearl-Cohn High School in Nashville.

About 150 kids attended the clinic, 80% of which will end up getting track scholarships to college.

While teaching the fundamentals of track and field, Coach Smith says his clinic covers so much more.

“We have somebody speaking on everything from being a good citizen, to being a good student, to being a good athlete,” he said.

Smith’s clinic is funded by private donations.
