Former BISD soccer standout Blake Smith recently signed a contract to continue his professional career with San Antonio FC.
Smith attended both Boerne High and Boerne Champion before graduating as a Charger in 2009. He was on the 2006 BHS state championship team as a freshman before closing out his high school career as a Charger under coach David Rogers when Boerne High closed for renovations.
Before Rogers left Boerne and began coaching at LEE, he retired Smith’s jersey at a ceremony at BISD Stadium.
Smith went on to play at the University of New Mexico where he had a stellar college career. From there, he was drafted No. 8 overall in the 2013 Major League Soccer SuperDraft.
Smith, 28, has been playing professionally since he was drafted.
