abilities have earned Curry Todd a place in the Tennessee Sports Hall of
Fame. The Tennessee Hall of Fame features notable sports figures from
every sport, including basketball, football, baseball, soccer, golf,
track and field, and even rafting. Members of the Tennessee Sports Hall
of Fame share a fairly elite honor: there are only about five hundred
honorees and inductees in the hall, which was officially created twenty
years ago when Tennessee lawmakers unanimously passed the Tennessee
Sports Hall of Fame Act of 1994, four years before Curry Todd was voted
into office as a State Representative.
