This week's author: Johnathon J. Smith

Johnathon J. Smith seeks to inspire student-athletes with his new children's book, Dare to Dream, Play to Win. A heart-warming and motivational story presented as part of a world-class package, Smith wrote the book to show how young children can take the lessons learned from sports and apply them to the classroom. It is designed to encourage them to stay in school and learn all they can while still participating in team sports.

A former University of Connecticut football player, Smith was hungry to be a great student athlete. He says, “You see, I was in search of a quick way to cash in, but somewhere along the way I realized that an education was far more valuable than what any sport or paycheck could offer.” He transferred to the University of Delaware where a greater emphasis was placed on academics. Since graduating, he started a personal fitness company that provides personal training services from the comfort of his own studio, select outdoor locations in South Florida, or his clients’ own fitness facilities. He is also volunteers to events and nonprofit organizations serving kids.

Through his experiences he came to realize that he needed to focus on his degree because football wasn’t going to support him for the rest of his life.

Finalizing an adult book with the same title, he designed it to be a guide for those who desire to pursue college sports.
