Despite starting off the season losing their first seven games, Elizabethtown has bounced back and into the playoffs. Junior quarterback Kyle Todd has helped to lead that surge.

Etown struggled to start off the year, sitting at 0-7 going into an away game at Shawnee in Louisville. But the Elizabethtown offense exploded, averaging 47 points per game in the final three.

"We have made strides all year long and have begun to make a nice little run here at the end of the regular season, going into the playoffs," said Todd. "As for me personally, I have been able to set a few landmarks I had for myself, but in the end, the team and winning ball games is the most important thing," Todd finished.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound quarterback lists: being a student of the game, his size, arm strength and mobility as his strengths as a player. But he is still working to get better.

"I am always trying to improve all aspects of my game, whether its' film study, footwork or fixing things as they come along with experience," said Todd. "I also think I can always find ways to become a better leader and lead by example for my team," he said.

Todd, the son of Etown Head Coach Brad Todd, is also the younger brother of former Auburn quarterback Chris Todd. Kyle has learned a lot from his older sibling.

"He had been a tremendous benefit to me," said Todd. "He has been through it all, already and is extremely knowledgeable and his help has been immeasurable," Todd finished.

Todd hasn't received any scholarship offers at this point in time, but he has received interest from Indiana, Iowa, UCLA, Duke and Kentucky. He also camped at Murray State.

Though the stats are incomplete, through seven games, Todd was 132 of 228 for 1798 yards and 16 touchdowns.
