Lloyd’s kicking prowess went viral across social media and impressed Pro Football Hall of Famer Gil Brandt – who was the former vice president of player personnel for the Dallas Cowboys.
Brandt tweeted: “Honestly, I don't think it will be long before we see a woman break through this NFL barrier. I'd give her an honest tryout if I were, say, the Bears.”
