Part Coach, Part Cop, Lawrence Smith Works to Better the Lives of City Students
Updated: Friday, December 6 2013, 05:44 PM EST
High school football coach Lawrence Smith took the Dunbar Poets to three consecutive championships before losing in this year's playoffs. But for Smith, his day job isn't as coach - or even as teacher - but as school cop.
Though being a cop was never really his plan, Smith was coaching at Dunbar when a job opportunity came up in the city and he headed off to the police academy.
"I got the call, came up, passed a couple of tests and got sent to the police academy," Smith said. "I got so happy and lucky to be based at the school I coach football at."
It's one location, but two avenues to reach the kids.
"Nothing really gets past me, because I can always go find someone that knows what's going on and they usually let me know what happened without any problems," Smith said.
For Smith it's an 8 o'clock in the morning to 9 at night type job every day, sometimes more.
"I've dealt with getting up at 2 am years ago and dealing with guys that were arrested, that comes with the territory," Smith said. "I've had a kid stabbed years ago, had a kid shot years ago, so I always tell my kids I look at it like this, you can deal with me on this side and play football and go to college or deal with me on the other side. My job is to get them out of Baltimore City and possibly go to college."
Smith is with the kids 13 hours a day to strive for excellence on the field - and most importantly, off.
