Todd Constable, a women’s track and field coach, has been a stabilizing and inspiring presence at Fort Dodge High School for many years. However, Constable has been battling health problems for some time and will undergo four bypass surgeries this week. Thanks to the support of his colleagues and family, Constable checked into the hospital and may have saved his life. As he remains in the intensive care unit, the Fort Dodge community rallies around him to show their appreciation for his kind heart and dedication to teaching and coaching.
Despite Constable’s absence, two of his athletes, junior Rainie Marr and sophomore Mariah Myers, competed in the throwing event at the coeducational state tournament in Des Moines. Constable has always been known for his positivity, and his athletes missed his unwavering support during the tournament. Nonetheless, his legacy at Fort Dodge lives on, as he is loved and respected by all for his uplifting energy, care for others, and supportive nature.
Eric Pratt, a sports editor for Messenger, praises Constable for his commitment to helping others in their moments of weakness and vulnerability and encourages the community to give back to someone who has given so much to them. Everyone is hoping for a successful surgery and speedy recovery for Constable, who has made such a big impact on the Fort Dodge High School community.
