Coach Marcel/Smith/Cel has seen immediate success since he began his coaching career with The Family Basketball Organization. His coaching style is described as detailed but free with the expectation of being fundamentally sound with dedication and hard work as a team. Coach Smith believes “Small Details” are the difference in winning and losing most of the time. Also, Coach Smith doesn't believe in one person being bigger than the team which has lead to staggering success at the youth basketball level. Coach Smith is patient and doesn’t expect everything to come right away as he moves up the ranks coaching top to bottom in the family basketball program. In 2019, Coach Smith "Cel" was selected as Detroit Piston Coach of The Year and advanced to the semifinals (final 8) for Jr. NBA Coach of The Year.
