Curry Todd: Basketball
Curry Todd has been a constituent of the Tennessee House of Representatives since 1998. Before that he was a businessman, and before that a Memphis Police Official. But before any of these things, Curry Todd was a standout basketball player in high school, good enough to have received numerous scholarship offers from colleges and universities all around the country.
To this day, Curry Todd is the only Tennessee high school basketball player to make the All-Memphis team four years in a row. He also made it to the All-Shelby County basketball team for three years, and was named the Shelby County Player of the Year. He was elected a high school All-American in Scholastic and Parade magazines and named the Tennessee Player of the Year. And in one of the greatest accolades accorded a young basketball player, Curry Todd’s basketball jersey number was retired when high school playing days were over.
Curry Todd was a sought-after college prospect who was inundated with offers from colleges. UCLA, the University of Kentucky, the University of Tennessee, Duke University, the University of North Carolina, Texas A&M, Connecticut, and the University of Southern California all expressed interested in getting Curry Todd into their basketball programs. And that is just to name a few.
But when it came time to make a decision, Curry Todd nominated to stay close to home, and chose the University of Memphis, which at the time was known as Memphis State University, where he remained a high scored averaging sixteen points per game.
