Recently, when Alphonso Smith decided to return to his home town of Pahokee, Florida, the goal was to become the head coach for the Pahokee High School Blue Devils, his alma mater. Thankfully for everyone, he was very successful, leading his hometown team to an 8-2 regular season record and a district title. That was a distinct improvement over the previous year, when they went 5-5 and missed the playoffs.
