Todd MacCulloch

Being in the right place at the right time, doing the right thing, and trying to help those in need. That describes much of Todd MacCulloch's early life, and it paints a pretty good picture of the man today. He arrived in Philadelphia with little fanfare from the University of Washington in 1999. Few people east of the PAC-10 Conference knew much about him. But MacCulloch experienced enough success in those first few years that soon all of Philly knew his name.

MacCulloch indeed steadily made a mark with his prowess on the basketball court. But it's off the court where he seems to be having his greatest impact as he strives to do the right thing. There's a great desire within him to walk in purity and integrity.

MacCulloch was raised in a loving Christian home and was taught the basics of love, faith, humility, and service from his earliest years. "We've always had the Word in our lives, and though I've struggled at times I've always believed," says Todd, "and I've always known that that's what I need to be doing." Those seeds planted early in life continue to bear fruit today.
