Todd Sheridan ’06 Named to Stevens Institute Hall of Fame

Posted September 26th, 2022

On September 23, the late Todd Sheridan, a 2006 St. Augustine Prep graduate and 2010 Stevens Institute of Technology graduate, joined seven Stevens alumni who were inducted into the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame. Representing Todd were his parents, John and Betty as well as a contingent of his closest Hermit Brothers and friends.

Prior to arriving at St. Augustine, Todd starred for several of the top youth soccer programs in New Jersey including the Hillsborough Blackhawks and South Jersey Barons. His high school career led him to Richland where his 49-career goals place him in the top 10 in goals at the Prep. Playing for legendary Prep Soccer head coach, Les Heggan, Sheridan was a key member of a pair of State Championship teams (2003 and 2005) and also earned Daily Journal Player of the Year honors in his senior season. His efforts helped continue the rich history of a program that further cemented its place among the most respected in the entire state.

Sheridan’s career at Stevens was just as magical as his time at the Prep. Todd excelled on the pitch for the Ducks from 2006-09, finishing his career at Castle Point with 37 goals (seven goals in the NCAA Tournament) and six assists over 81 matches. He was a First Team All-Empire 8 Conference selection in 2008 and as of his Stevens Hall of Fame induction, remains ranked in the Ducks’ all-time top 10 in both career goals and points. Todd also co-holds the team record for goals in a single game (4 goals), which the Galloway native achieved in 2006. He was an immediate difference maker ranking 22nd in the country in goals per match and 39th in points per match as a first-year collegiate scholar-athlete.

The Todd M. Sheridan ’10 Pinnacle Scholarship was established at Stevens by his parents Elizabeth and Jack to celebrate his legacy at Stevens. This scholarship that bears his name assists other incredible students who demonstrate financial need.

Similar to his role in the continued emergence of the Prep Soccer program, Todd’s career at Stevens saw the men’s soccer program in the midst of unprecedented success. The Ducks reached the postseason in each of Sheridan’s four seasons in Hoboken, culminating in a National Championship appearance in 2008. His four-year collegiate career was a key component of the Ducks’ run of 13 consecutive conference championships and postseason appearances, bridging the program’s migration from the Skyline Conference to the Empire 8. Over their four seasons together, Sheridan’s class was one of the most productive in program history, posting a remarkable 71-8-12 record, including a sterling 24-2-2 mark in conference play. The team’s 18-0-3 campaign in 2006 was the program’s first season without a defeat since 1940.

Todd was the epitome of the term “scholar-athlete” as his intellect and academic ability were as much an impetus to his attending Stevens Institute of Technology as his athletic prowess. Fueled by a passion for the classroom, most specifically engineering, the Hoboken-based school presented everything he was looking for academically and athletically. His accolades were not reserved to the pitch as he was a Head of School Honors student through his four years at the Prep carrying this academic success to Stevens by earning his way onto the Dean’s List in each of his four years in college. He was also a three-year Edward J. Bloustein Distinguished Scholar and a three-time Edwin A. Stevens Scholar at Stevens. The list goes on as he was the Joel Crouch Award winner as a senior for his four-year contributions to the men’s soccer program at Stevens as well as the recipient of the Athletic Department’s Dr. Harold J. Raveche Award in 2010 awarded annually to a senior student-athlete who best combines academic and athletic excellence with the ability to lead in the classroom and in competition. Todd continued in college what was instilled in him during his time at the Prep, a dedication to equal amounts of diligence to one’s efforts in the classroom as well as on the athletic field.

The Augustinian-trained student closed his academic career in college earning a Bachelor of Engineering with a concentration in Civil Engineering from Stevens in 2010 graduating with a 3.30 GPA and honors. He loved and excelled at Physics, and even considered earning a Master’s Degree in Physics. Instead, he went on to earn his Master of Science degree in Geotechnical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2012.

Todd was the heart & soul of every team he played for and every class he was a part of during his time with us – a true leader on-and-off the pitch. He is beloved and dearly missed by both his St. Augustine and Stevens families and his legacy will live on forever.


Todd Sheridan will always be remembered at St. Augustine for his athletic prowess but more so for his character and his gift of making others feel so special.  His achievements, diligence, and perseverance in applying his time at the Prep to success in college and life are an example of a Hermit Brother realizing life’s greater purpose as an alumnus. The school is blessed to have many alumni who continue to represent the Prep with the same pride and vigor they held as students. Todd’s legacy places him amongst a distinguished list of Hermits Alumni who have earned distinctions in finance, education, athletics, medicine, business, and a variety of other industries.  The Prep Community misses Todd dearly and will take solace in knowing the Hermit Brotherhood will always carry Todd’s example with them for years to come.  To support the Todd M.
