Site Director: Caeser Smith

Coach Smith returned to SHC, his alma mater, in 2020 from San Antonio, Texas, where he served as head varsity basketball coach and taught political science at Southwest High School. In his years as head coach at Southwest, Smith transformed the program, helping to achieve its first winning season, most wins in a decade, and the highest number of district wins in school history.

Recognized for his extensive knowledge of the game, strength in player development and prowess in building team culture, Smith was selected by the National Association of Basketball Coaches to coach in the inaugural NCAA College Basketball Academy and by the San Antonio Area Association of Basketball Coaches Board of Directors to coach the 2019 South All-Star Team. As a student at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Smith helped the boys basketball team capture the 1996 WCAL Championship. Smith went on to play at City College of San Francisco and then at Sonoma State University on scholarship. Smith earned his master’s degree in education at the University of Southern California and is currently working on his doctorate in Global Sports Leadership.
