Ted was a four-year star for the Saint Michael's College men's basketball team in the mid-1970's.  He averaged in double-figures in each of his four varsity seasons, and finished his great career averaging 16.1 points and 7.1 rebounds per game.  As a junior, he was among the top five in the nation in scoring, averaging 22 points per game!  In his junior and senior seasons combined, he averaged nearly 21 points and 7.8 rebounds per game.  He wasn't just a gunner, either...his shooting percentage for his career was just under 55% from the field, and nearly 75% from the line.  Ted was just the fifth Purple Knight to surpass the 1,500 career point milestone, and his 1,548 career points currently rank him #9 on the all-time scorer's list.  He was a two-time All-ECAC, UPI All New-England, and NEBCA All-New England selection.  The Purple Knights were 46-54 during Ted's four-year career.

Since graduation, Ted has built a very successful insurance career, and is currently President of M & M Group Benefits, Inc. in Newington, Conn.  He is President and on the Board of Directors of the Newington Rotary Club, and is a member of the Newington Chamber of Commerce and the Hartford Elks Club.  He is an annual solicitor for the United Way of Greater Hartford, and is an active volunteer for the American Cancer Society.  He is also involved as a coach in the Wethersfield Little League and Youth Basketball League.

Ted and his wife Joyce have three sons, and reside in Wethersfield, Conn.
