York PA's BEST

by NCAA Divisions

by Don Lehman



York PA's BEST College Wrestlers
by NCAA Division (I, II, III)

Then, There Were Three...!


Brad Lloyd
Division I...
Brad Lloyd (Red Lion HS) (Lock Haven University)
3-time NCAA DI All-American ('89, '88, '86)
3-time PSAC Champion & EWL Champion
PWCA PA Wrestling Hall of Fame


              Red Lion's Brad Lloyd (LHU) - bio

                             1988-89 (L-R) LHU's Craig Corbin & Brad Lloyd.

                   Red Lion alumnus Brad Lloyd was a 3-time PSAC champion, EWL champion
            in '89 and a 3-time NCAA Division I All-American Wrestler ('86, '88, '89)...
            for the Lock Haven University Bald Eagles.  Brad Lloyd is featured on practically

            all Lock Haven University Wrestling Records.  Brad Lloyd had a career record
            of 146-25-2 at LHU with 44 falls and 28 technical falls!!  Brad Lloyd lost to
            Oklahoma State's Chris Barnes, 1-1, 2-2, "criteria 3" in the finals of the 1989
            NCAA's in Oklahoma City.  Brad was seeded #1 in 1989 NCAA's.  In addition to
his NCAA DI 2nd place finish in '89, Brad also placed 3rd in '88 & 7th in '86.
                   (Brad wrestled for Head Coach Neil W. Turner @ Lock Haven University)
            Red Lion's/LHU's Brad Lloyd is in the EWL Hall of Fame, and in my opinion is
            the BEST NCAA Division I College Wrestler ever from York County!
  A close
            second would be York Suburban/York Vo-Tech - West Virginia's Mark Banks,
            a 2-time EWL champion...who placed 5th twice for West Virginia University
            at the NCAA's - in '90 & '91... earning consecutive DI All-American honors.
