Lloyd, BlythevillD High School senior and captain of the 1349 football team \vlio is considered by several coaches as one of the finest linemen to come out of NorlK- cnst Arkansas in a number of years, has received the highest honor can be paid to a high school football player, all-American mention, it was learned here today. Uoyd was given a tackle berth on flip second team of tlic Wigwam Wiscmen of America's All-America selections, the only such selection made. The Wisemen, an Oklahoma City, Okla., organi/ation, make their selections from a poll of spoils writers of the united States. Lloyd was the only Arkansas player to receive mention on one of the fire! two teams. In fact, only one other Arkansas player was named one one ot the first six teams, sixteen players, however, received honorable mention. i'arajrould player Mentioned Another Arkansas player, Victor Brashears, Paragould High School's brilliant quarterback, was among those receiving honorable mention honors* He like Lloyd, is a senior. H was pointed out. however, that only high school seniors are eligible lor mention on one ol the first six learns. Sports writers could vote for juniors and sophomores but for honorable mention only. The Wigwam Wisemen of America last year started their poll for the mythical all-Amerieaii team and boys receiving mention became eligible to participate in the East-West high school game held In corpus Christ!, Tex. The WL%men sponsored the game. Lloyd was the second Blythcville player to receive mention on the all-American selections in as mans years. Last year Denny Gentry, who is now a sUident at Tulsa University, Tulsa, Okja., received mention. When informed that he had re ceivcd a second-team berth, Lloyd', only comment was "Who, me?' And then, still unbelievingly, h posed for photographers with coach Russell Mosley. Simultaneously vtth his learn- Imj of his lalesl honor, Uoyd announced 'Vis intentions of entering the University of Arkansas upon his graduation from Hlythe- villfi High School. When asked what school he plan ned to attend he replied that h had not definitely made up h mind but stated that he "mor than likely" would enter the un versity o[ Arkansas. Although shunned on just ftbot every all-state team this year, th 202-pound, six-foot tackle, recciv high praises from opposing coach for his play this year. He v rated by Coach Mosley as one the best Viigri school tncVAes he Via seen in several years. Lloyd's quick' thinking and exceptional speed made him a serious threat to opposing backs. He was one of the fastest men on the Chick squad this year and Coaeh "Mosley,. at one time before the season opened, considered running him at fullback.
