My Name Is Maurice “Moe” Lloyd.
I was born in Daytona Beach, Florida and attended Mainland High School where I graduated from in 2001. After graduation I went to the University of Connecticut on a Football Scholarship.
While playing football for the University of Connecticut, I had the privilege of helping the 2001 Huskies bring home the Motor City Bowl trophy back to UConn. During that game I was able to collect 19 tackles and one sack which made me a stand out during the recruitment period the following season. I was recruited to play in the Canadian Football League (CFL) for the Saskatchewan Roughriders from 2006-2008.
I graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2005 with Psychology degree. After graduation, I took my talent to the next level and played 5 years of professional football in the Canadian Football League.
In 2007, we won the Grey Cup (the equivalent to winning the Super Bowl in the NFL), I was a CFL West All-Star 2007 and 2008, and was also a CFL All-star in 2008. In 2009, I signed with Edmonton Eskimos and played two seasons with that team.
After nearly 20 years of football at all possible levels, I decided to hang up my helmet. Despite leaving professional football, I wasn’t entirely ready to give up the game that was ingrained in my blood.
I started coaching high school football, and was able to not only enjoy the game but make a bigger impact helping young teenagers become young adults. I feel some of my biggest accomplishments are helping student athletes graduate from high school and prepare themselves for the real world.
