Background: Todd grew up in Augusta, playing baseball and football at Butler High School. He attended Andrew College for two years on a baseball scholarship (he was a team captain), before transferring to Augusta University.
How he got into teaching: Todd began his teaching career in 1993 at Tubman Middle School. "After my first year in college, I knew I wanted to be a teacher and coach," he said. "I was very fortunate at a young age to have great coaches and mentors who made a positive impact in my life. I love working with students and helping them develop academically and athletically. There is no greater profession than being a teacher and I am so grateful of the opportunity I have each day to work with students, faculty, and parents."
How he found Prep: In February, Todd was hired to become the second head football coach in Augusta Prep history, replacing Harry Bacheller. Todd previously served as head coach at Hephzibah and Harlem. "When I got the job, I started having Saturday morning workouts with the players to get to know them. After the first workout I knew we had some special young men with great work ethics and high character. In May, we were able to do a week of Spring Practice and now we are in our summer phase of practice. "It is a pleasure to lead this program and I am blessed to have such great young men and assistant coaches."
