Season 3 | Episode 322 | Aired 04/08/2006
On March 5, Todd Craft of Hondo, Texas, a high school sports coach who's been a constant inspiration in his community and his family, will receive the news that he will receive a beautiful and renovated home in a remarkable seven days thanks to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.In addition, while team captain Ty Pennington is busy helping families in the Gulf States with hurricane relief, his friend, Kermit the Frog, has his back.
Coach Craft is more than a coach. He is a mentor, motivator and inspiration to every student at D'Hanis High School. Now the students and faculty of D'Hanis want to show him how much he means to them. As a year-round coach for football, baseball and girl's basketball -- and a teacher of Health and Speech class -- Coach Craft has neither the time or money to take care of his own home for his very special family.
Coach Craft and his wife, Elizabeth, have four children: Samantha (10), Sarah (7), Isabella (2) -- who was not expected to live after being born with Alobas Holoprosencephaly, a serious brain malformation -- and their one-year-old miracle baby and only son, Todd Joseph.
The Craft children require constant care, so Elizabeth must stay at home. Todd's meager coaching salary is all they has to support them. But through all of their hardships, the Crafts continue to push on and stay strong. Their only wish -- and the school's -- is for Coach Craft to continue to do his wonderful work at D'Hanis High School and not have to worry that his family is falling victim to their house. In this episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," the design team will help score a big touchdown for this very deserving coach and his special family.
While the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition design team, contractors and hundreds of workers and volunteers are transforming the Craft house into a dream home, the Crafts will go on vacation to Hilton Huntington Beach. And hey, hey, singer Davy Jones of the Monkees stops in to help decorate a room and sings one of their most popular hits.
The design team for this episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will feature Kermit the Frog, Paul DiMeo, Paige Hemmis, Ed Sanders, Tanya McQueen and Eduardo Xol.
