Judd Smith had the opportunity to play professional beach volleyball, and even though his playing days are behind him, he is still involved in the game.
Last month, he was named the Gulf Coast regional director for USA Volleyball. He’s thrilled about the new role, which includes organizing junior tournaments throughout the year.

Smith has done a lot for volleyball in the area, including starting up the Bulldog Beach Volleyball Club early last spring at Lagerheads on Navarre Beach.
