“Take it from a coach that has had to go up against her, Loyal gave us all kinds of fits. You can never really stop a player like that, you can only hope to contain her. With Loyal, you could throw different defenses at her, and it wouldn’t matter because she also has that decision-making ability to find a teammate. You can never really gameplan for Loyal McQueen.”
Kevin Robinson
Head Coach Head coach at West Florence High
