“My connection with ChadTough is close to my heart. Though I never was coached by Lloyd on the field, over the years I treasure the way I have gotten to know him off the field. Lloyd has always been a role model and someone I look up to. The unfortunate decline in Chad’s health was hard for me to witness, knowing how much heartache it caused Lloyd and his family. It’s an honor to support such an amazing cause that is helping so many children fight to stay healthy.”
