From Grey Knight to Viking! Congratulations to Malachi Smith on signing his National Letter of Intent and Athletic Grant In Aid to play Division 1 lacrosse at Cleveland State University as well as his acceptance to CSU College of Health Sciences where he will major in Pre-physical Therapy in the Fall of 2019.
Malachi started playing lacrosse in 5th grade at Decatur Recreation Center and summer tournaments with Decatur Tomatoes. He continued to play at Inman and has been a varsity starter, co-captain and key player taking the Grady Grey Knights to their first GHSA state appearance in program history in 2017. Playing travel club lacrosse with Georgia Copperheads for 3 years and Thunder LB3 last Fall/Summer season gave him the exposure for this opportunity to play at the next level. The first APS homegrown talent to play Division 1 lacrosse, we are all expecting to do great things!
