Four Wings of All-Star Team



(Vol. 1, No. 1, November 1975)

Terry Lloyd, the Wings’ sharp-shooting forward from Oshawa, Ontario, has replaced his older brother Larry as a member of the 1975 National Lacrosse League first all-star team.

Larry, who won first-team honors as a forward in 1974, had to settle for a spot on the second team after suffering a crippling knee injury that forced him to miss the crucial final four games of the season.

Other Wings chosen to the second team were center John Grant, who also made the second unit in 1974, and Captain Carm Collins, the team’s outstanding defensive player.

Terry Lloyd’s spot on the first team was expected because he did score 113 goals to lead the NLL in that department.  But the selection of three teammates to the second team came as somewhat of a surprise.

This gave the Wings four of the 12 places on the first two all-star teams, more than any other squad in the six-team loop.

The other members of the first team were: Long Island’s Jim Johnston and Doug Hayes; Montreal’s John Davis and goalie Ernie Mitchell and Boston’s Ivan Thompson, who also won the Most Valuable Player award.
