Meadowcreek Mustangs Begin The Todd Wofford Era


Meadowcreek Mustangs working on day three of summer workouts with new head coach Todd Wofford

The Meadowcreek Mustangs football team is back on the field for summer workouts as they start to prepare for the 2022 season, in which they will have a new head coach for the first time since 2015 when Jason Carrera took over the program. Usher in the Todd Wofford era, who was announced as the new head coach of the Mustangs back in January.


Wofford has been a coach in Gwinnett County since 2010, when he took over as head coach at Central Gwinnett. In 2019, Wofford made the move over to Collins Hill where he serves as assistant head coach, passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach and help the Eagles reach the Georgia High School Association 7A state title games the past two seasons, in which the 2021 season was capped with a state championship win.



Now, back in the driver’s seat, Wofford said he felt it was time for him to “jump back in the saddle” and choosing Meadowcreek was an easy decision for him after seeing the talent the team had in a scrimmage while he was with Collins Hill. “I saw a lot of potential in that scrimmage and I felt like after winning a state championship, I wanted to get back in the saddle and get that challenge again and I think that we can do a lot of things and surprise a lot of people this year,” Wofford said.


And when it comes to establishing the type of culture that he and his staff are looking to build within the Mustangs’ program, Wofford says that one important factor will be “no excuses for whatever it is,” from missing practices to understanding the difference between being injured and hurt. Wofford added that leadership from his players, regardless of classification will also be key for Meadowcreek to continue having success on the field.


“I don’t care if you’re a ninth grader or a twelve grader, I just want leaders regardless of what grader you’re in, just be a leader,” Wofford said of his players adding that the leadership could be vocal or just in work ethic, either way he and his staff want their players to learn how to be leaders on and off the field. The Mustangs will open up their season on August 19 against Greater Atlanta Christian.
