Going on an LDS mission was a tough choice for Dallas Lloyd, but he thinks it improved his game, the freshmen quarterback at Stanford, told Stanford Athletics.
"I think serving a mission also helped me become a better football player, a better teammate, better prepared to lead the team and to contribute in the way that I can," Lloyd told Stanford Athletics.
It was such a difficult decision because instead of going on a mission, Lloyd could have gone to Stanford right out of high school and started getting a great education, he told Stanford Athletics. But he doesn't regret serving a mission. He's pretty glad he did.
"I'm so grateful for my mission," Lloyd told Stanford Athletics. "And for the opportunity that I was given to be able to forget about myself, go out and serve other people."
Lloyd served in Vina Del Mar, Chile, from 201-2012.
