Todd Androsko | Baseball
UWF HALL OF FAME - CLASS OF 2011-12
Todd Androsko was one of the best pitchers to ever toe the rubber for the Argonauts. He led West Florida to the program’s first two Gulf South Conference East Division Championships in 2003 and 2004.
In his freshman season in 2003, Androsko made a big splash, finishing 21st in NCAA Division II with a 2.15 ERA and leading UWF with 14 starts. In his first postseason start, the lefthander hurled a complete game shutout against Alabama-Huntsville in the GSC Tournament.
In 2004, Androsko led the Argos with a 3.09 ERA and fanned 84 batters in 81.2 innings of work. In 2005, he finished tied first for the team lead with 83.1 innings pitched and held opponents to a .248 average. In his senior season, he led West Florida with nine wins and tossed 106.2 innings on the hill.
Androsko is UWF’s all-time leader in career starts (57), career innings pitched (366.2) and career strikeouts (321) and ranks second in wins (28). He also led the Argos in strikeouts and complete games all four years with the program. Androsko was also one of only two players in conference history to be named a four-time All-GSC selection, and three of the selections were to the first team. In 2010, he capped off his career honors with a selection to the GSC All-Decade Team.
UWF Athletics Hall of Fame Questionnaire
- What was your most memorable moment in UWF athletics?
Aside from watching last year’s squad compete for and win a national championship, I remember being a young freshman starting in our very first Gulf South Conference tournament matchup against Alabama-Huntsville. After completing the first few innings the game was postponed due to severe weather. Fearing I had wasted a decent outing on only a few hitters, I was informed that I would still be throwing the following morning, once the game resumed. With the help of some extra offensive output, I was able to not only complete all nine innings, but also pitch a shutout against one of the better teams in our division.
- Being a former student-athlete, how has it helped you in your life after college?
As a student-athlete I was able to learn two important tasks that have helped me to succeed. One, I was able to trust teammates. Having the knowledge that others are working just as hard as you are to attain a goal is a great concept. Second, my time management skills have allowed me to work on a number of projects at once, without limiting my productivity.
- Are you still involved with your sport? If so, in what capacity?
I am still involved in baseball, helping children and teenagers with their pitching skills as well as their strength and conditioning.
- What is your current occupation?
I am currently working locally as a certified personal trainer and fitness specialist.
