Todd Jeffrey (“TJ”) Duckett
Kalamazoo, Michigan gave us a true champion in Todd Jeffrey (“TJ”) Duckett. A champion on competitive fields of play, as well as one who believes in improving the lives of others. Duckett was a three-year starter for Loy Norrix High School Knights football and was named an All-American athlete, as well as Parade Magazine and Rivalnet’s Player of the Year. He also was a two-year first-team all-state as a linebacker and was near the top of every recruiting service in the country. Duckett was awarded a football scholarship to Michigan State University in 1999. As a Spartan, he studied Communications and earned All-Big Ten Conference Honors as a Junior, still holding the record as sixth all-time leading rusher in the school’s history.
After his career at Michigan State University, Duckett was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the first round of the 2002 NFL Draft, leading a great lineup as part of their daunting rushing offense from 2003-2005. Duckett was traded in 2006 to the Washington Redskins before returning to his home state in 2007 when he signed with the Detroit Lions. From March of 2008 to August of 2009, Duckett served as a short-yardage back for the Seattle Seahawks, but found himself approaching an entirely new career path upon his departure from the grid iron.
Duckett’s passion and drive also lead him to co-found New World Flood. New World Flood is a Michigan non-profit organization that believes citizens can be change agents in their communities by using education and service as a means to sustain the overall welfare of their environment. New World Flood helps citizens develop a sense of responsibility for the overall well-being of their communities and help them use their dreams as a means to drive their motivation to make direct impact on their communities. By focusing on youth, community, education, and service New World Flood seeks to provide a mechanism by which citizens continually grow through their purpose and community engagement. New World Flood is an entity by which every individual can make a difference in their communities, because a single raindrop is the beginning of a flood.
Discovering his Entrepreneurial Spirit, Todd founded Duckett Enterprises in 2011. Duckett Enterprises mission is to build successful businesses that have a true impact on the community by providing goods, products and services the customer will enjoy at the same time pouring back into the community from our profits.
