The 6-foot, 170-pound senior guard had led the Wolves to a 19-1 season and a berth in the Class A regional semifinals at the time of his selection. The year after helping lead the Wolves to the Class A state championship, Loyer averaged 26 points, six assists, 3.9 steals and 3.5 rebounds through 20 games to go with robust shooting accuracy of 52 percent from inside the arc, 51 percent from 3-point range and 91 percent from the free throw line. Before his season ended due to a meniscus tear he suffered Feb. 27, the four-time Class A All-State standout and 2,000-point career scorer solidified himself as a finalist for Michigan Mr. Basketball.
Loyer has maintained a weighted 3.94 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball on scholarship at Michigan State University this fall.
A youth basketball coach and referee, Loyer is also a youth group leader at Clarkston United Methodist Church and an academic tutor to underclassmen at his high school.
