Since first bursting onto the pro foosball scene with his unexpected doubles victory with partner Gil Jackson at the 1977 World Championships, Denver, Colorado native Todd Loffredo has put together a list of career achievements that is truly second to none. Perhaps the most gifted foosball player to ever play the game, the legendary Loffredo has been one of the sport's most versatile all-around performers for more than a quarter century. Todd spent the majority of his early career playing the forward position before switching to goalie in 1998 and earning a record five straight world doubles titles with partner Frederic Collignon. Playing the forward position for Scotty Wydman, Loffedo led his team to back-to-back world titles in 1994 and 1995, a feat that had never previously been accomplished.

His devastating long pull shot is still considered perhaps the best ever, and his ability to seemingly read the mind of the opposing player is almost supernatural. In perhaps the most remarkable statistic of his unparalled career, Loffredo has won an incredible thirteen of the previous nineteen world doubles titles while playing with five different partners.

Considered by most to be the greatest forward ever, Loffredo is currently hailed as the game's top goalie, a position that was further enhanced by his recent Championship Doubles victory in Dallas with Collignon. Todd also became the first three-time winner of the prestigious Masters Singles title with his win over Adrian Zamora at the 2003 event. Any way you want to look at it: forward, goalie, doubles, singles, the amazing Mr. Loffredo is quite simply the greatest American foosball player to ever hold a handle.
