TODD WOLFSON – ST. FRANCIS (CA) HIGH SCHOOL BOYS’ VARSITY COACH – EPISODE 277

Todd Wolfson


Todd Wolfson is the Boys’ Head Varsity Basketball Coach at St. Francis High School in California.  Growing up in the San Fernando Valley as a three year varsity player at El Camino Real High School in Woodland Hills, Todd always knew he wanted to become a high school coach.  Wolfson attended UC Santa Barbara where he studied communications and his focus switched from playing to coaching. 

Wolfson began his coaching career at his alma mater spending two season at El Camino Real High School from 2005-2007. In 2007 Todd took over the program at Chaminade High School where in 2014 Coach Wolfson’s Eagles went 27-6 and won the first ever California State Championship in the history of the school. Todd was named CIF coach of the year in 2009, the youngest coach to ever receive that honor. 

Wolfson took over the St. Francis Golden Knights Basketball Team in 2015. By 2018 the team won 24 games and reached the 3rd round of the CIF playoffs and in 2019 the Golden Knights advanced to the CIF California State Championship game.  Coach Wolfson’s philosophy  always circles back to the question, “Is this putting my teammates before myself.”
