RiverKings promote David Schmoll to General Manager

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. -- The Mississippi RiverKings are proud to announce the promotion of David Schmoll to General Manager. Schmoll, who is in his sixth season with the RiverKings, moves up from his position as Director of Business Operations to take on his new role.

“David came to us in 2009 as an unpaid intern and since then has worked his way up the ladder within the organization," RiverKings and Maddox Foundation President Robin Hurdle said. "His dedication, determination and hard work have earned him this promotion.”

With David’s guidance, the RiverKings have seen over a 57% increase in regular-season turnstyle attendance since 2013, including the highest attendance in the team’s SPHL-era in 2015-2016.

"I cannot thank Robin Hurdle and everyone at Maddox Foundation for the opportunity to grow within the organization that I began with as an intern," said David, "Our objectives going forward are the ones we have focused on over the past three years: to serve our Memphis-area community and non-profit partners, grow our fanbase throughout the Mid-South and bring a home a championship to the Landers Center."

Schmoll, 27, joined the RiverKings originally in 2009 as a game ops intern before rejoining the team in 2011 as the team’s Broadcaster and Media Relations Coordinator. He has also spent time with the St. Louis Blues, the Indiana Ice of the United States Hockey League in the media relations and hockey operations departments and WKMS as a reporter.

David is a graduate of Murray State University where he received his degree in Political Science. Since moving to the Mid-South, he has coached youth baseball and football in Hernando and also serves on the Horn Lake Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
