Director of Athletics Al Wood on the Little Moments That Make a Difference
Jacob Myers

“It made me more conscious of the little moments that you have with students and the big impact the small moments have because my kids weren’t necessarily coming home and spending their time talking about these big things we spend most of our time planning. Rather, they talked about the conversations with faculty members or having a breakthrough at practice, a coach noticing their effort and being seen . . . or, when they fell short and were held accountable. That made me realize that the biggest impacts we have (as faculty members) at St. Andrew’s are in those little moments and conversations with students.” (on sharing the SAS experience with his triplets) Al Wood P ’21, Director of Athletics & Director of Sports Medicine

A graduate of Lake Forest High School and the University of Delaware, Al Wood (we call him Mr. Incredible) joined the St. Andrew's School community in the Fall of 1997 as the Head Athletic Trainer. Over the course of the past two decades, Al has continued to add more to his plate as he is now the Director of Athletics and the Director of Sports Medicine (in addition to his duties as Head Athletic Trainer).
