Bountiful coach Larry Wall was disappointed to lose his starter, but stopped short of calling the hit a cheap shot.
"They pulled the kid after the play, and I think it was handled well on their end," Wall said. "I don't think there was any malicious intent. I don't think anybody over there was trying to take our quarterback out for the game."
Fellow junior Jordan Hayes, who had battled Lloyd for the spot in camp, took over and competed an 80-yard touchdown drive that eventually won the game for the Braves.
Still, Lloyd presented a tough casualty for Bountiful. In his debut as the starter, he had thrown for 205 yards, two touchdowns and an interception on 17-for-25 passing. Hayes will have to step into his cleats full time.
All things considered, Wall said he was impressed at how Lloyd carried himself despite the injury.
"He handled it well, and he'll be alright in the long run," Wall said. "You hate to see that, because he worked very, very hard. We'll try to support Trevor as a team, and he'll help us mentor the young quarterbacks."
Lone Peak coach Tony McGeary was not immediately available for comment.
