Todd Johnson was a three-sport student athlete who enjoyed competition and learning from an early age.
Coming up through the Windsor Locks Little League and Park and Rec Department programs Todd excelled at baseball, soccer and basketball; and he continued that excellence through Middle School and in to High School.
At WLHS, Todd played varsity basketball his sophomore and senior years. He was a 4-year starter on the varsity soccer team, was named team captain in his junior and senior years, earning All-Conference Honors for his junior and senior years and All-State his junior year. He scored 13 goals as a junior.
Although he was exceptional at all sports, baseball was the game that had his heart. A passion no doubt handed down from his grandfather Dick Teed who was a minor league ballplayer and a longtime scout for the Dodgers and the Phillies.
Todd was a member of the varsity baseball team for 4 years. He was named team captain his junior and senior years, was All-Conference for 3 years and All-State his junior and senior years.
In his senior year he put up staggering numbers; batting .509, hitting 6 home runs, collecting 26 runs batted in and stealing 9 bases.
A true student athlete, Todd was awarded the Scholar Athlete Award for each of his 4 years in high school, was a member of the National Honor Society and was ranked 4th in his class with a 3.8 GPA.
His successes on the diamond and in the classroom led him to Washington and Lee University in Lexington, VA where Todd started at second baseman for the varsity baseball team until shoulder injuries ended his career.
In his college recommendation letter, Coach Dan Sullivan said about Todd: “He is a good leader…a credit to his family, community, school and coaching staff. He is well liked and highly respected by his classmates, teammates, and faculty.”
A respected leader and a gifted athlete, Todd Johnson, welcome to the Hall of Fame.
