This is what parents are saying about Coach Todd:

"Hey Todd, I just wanted to let you know how grateful we are for your time spent working with Tyler. It is a special talent that can pull out the best of a child’s talent and commitment while keeping them entertained and looking for more and you have struck a chord with our son and he is having fun. As parents we all think our kid is better than sliced bread when the reality is we are quite delusional! It is a great tribute to you when I over hear compliments of Tyler’s catching and development. Maybe someday a college will come calling and we will have you to thank. Thanks and keep up the good work."
