A graduate member of the Tomahawk High School Class of 1938 participating in the maximum number of sports seasons which was two years in football, and four years in basketball.
With no football opportunities his freshmen or sophomore years, Lloyd made the most of the two years available to him by earning a major letter both his junior and senior years. Basketball was the only other sport available, and Lloyd was fortunate enough to do extremely well over his career. Playing freshmen ball inspired him. He worked hard to earn three major letters and was acknowledged for his efforts by being selected to Honorable Mention All Conference in the Valley his senior year while leading the Hatchets in conference scoring with 71 points. In addition to All Conference honors, Lloyd was a starter for the 1936-37 Hatchets who went to State (the second and last time to date that Tomahawk basketball has been to State) and the 1937-38 team that came one game away from returning to the state tournament.
Lloyd was also a member of the debate team and Editor-in-Chief of the high school annual for two years.
After high school, Lloyd played one year of basketball at UW-Whitewater and then went into the service for four years of active duty followed by 20 years of reserve duty. While in the service, Lloyd earned six air medals and retired in 1990.
