Name: Todd Vogt
Years Rowed: 4 (1992-1996)
Walk On or Experienced Rower: Walk on
Favorite Rowing Memories: there are so many it’s hard to pick just one. Rowing on Tonawanda Creek. Eating breakfast at Amy’s Place after practice. Going to Augusta for spring break training. Training at West Side Rowing Club during the summers.
UB Rowing Accomplishments: From my UB days, I’m most proud of winning the4+ at the 1996 NYS Collegiate Championship.
Occupation: masters women’s coach at station l rowing club in Portland, Oregon, sort of. Only coaching a little bit now and training full time to earn a seat to go to Tokyo Paralympics next summer.
Advice: you're stronger and faster than you think you are. We had a great group of guys while I rowed and part of the reason we had any success is that we created a very competitive environment that forced you to push yourself harder than you might otherwise had done.
