Played against him in high school at Blue Springs South.

He had some excellent catches last year at the end of the season for the 49'ers and already this year has been mentioned right out of Bermans mouth for some more excellent catches. Watch this kid, up and coming all star IMO. Too bad the chiefs didnt pick him up on some local scouting.

Anyone else been keeping thier eye on him?

When we played him (Central St. joseph) He played..

Quarterback
Reciever
Cornerback
Punt/kickoff returner
Punter/kicker.

I remember one kickoff he kicked stright through the uprights. They shoulda just gave him 3 points anyway, even though he was kicking off. Amazing athlete.

Lloyd TD catch sparks Niners' win over Chiefs

By RANDY COVITZ

The Kansas City Star


Former Blue Springs High School star Brandon Lloyd made his NFL debut one to remember.

Lloyd, a rookie wide receiver who grew up just a few miles from Arrowhead Stadium, caught a 39-yard touchdown pass the only time he touched the ball, sparking San Francisco's 24-6 preseason victory over the Chiefs on Saturday night.

With a delegation of family members and friends watching from the stands, Lloyd ran a go route past Chiefs cornerback William Bartee, hauled in Tim Rattay's pass inside the 5 and punctuated the play by plunging into the end zone, giving the 49ers a 7-3 lead in the second quarter.

"That was just a little flair," Lloyd said of his end-zone plunge. "I had to put a little something on the top. It's big just to have my whole family here and to have my first catch.

"I'm just blessed to have my first NFL touchdown catch at home. I'm just really happy to be in this situation."

The hardest part about the day was the interminable wait until game time.

"I was waiting for them to take out Tai Streets," said Lloyd, a fourth-round draft pick from the University of Illinois. "I didn't want to make it more than what it was. It's a game. It's a game I've been playing since I was little. It just so happened to be in my hometown. I didn't want to be so caught up in the moment that I would be messing up on my technique.

"I just wanted to make something happen, and I got the ball in my hands."

Lloyd, who is playing behind veterans Streets, Terrell Owens and Cedric Wilson, is the prime candidate to fill the vacancy created by the departure of J.J. Stokes, who is now with Jacksonville.

"Brandon is having an extremely good camp," said San Francisco coach Dennis Erickson, who had a hard time restraining his enthusiasm for Lloyd. "I'm very, very, very, very, very impressed with him. He's going to make the football team."

Rattay, starting for the injured Jeff Garcia, looked for Lloyd, a 6-foot, 184-pound target, as soon as the 49ers second-unit receivers entered the game.

"He made a really good move inside, got back outside and beat the guy downfield," Rattay said. "He's been doing great ever since minicamp when he came in. He's made an instant impact. He's got size, he's really smooth in his routes, he's got good speed and he's been making plays all camp."

Two other wide receivers with local ties were in uniform for the 49ers on Saturday night -- Arland Bruce, a former standout at Olathe North who spent part of the 2000 season on the Chiefs practice squad, and former Kansas State wide receiver Aaron Lockett.

Bruce, battling to win the starting kick-return job with the 49ers, was the first to touch the ball on Saturday night when he returned two kickoffs for 51 yards. Jimmy Williams, the 49ers' top kickoff return man last year, is not performing those duties this season because he's coming off a knee injury that ended his season with three games remaining in 2002.

Bruce was so eager to prove himself, he yanked the second kickoff from the arms of teammate Jamal Robertson and returned it 32 yards, setting up the series in which Lloyd scored.

Lloyd likes having some Kansas City comrades so far away from home.

"I told Arland, the first day I got there, `Man, I used to watch you when I was in high school,' and he said the same thing," Lloyd said. "It's good to see a familiar face, someone who knows about Gates and knows the city as a whole."

Bruce, who played collegiately at Minnesota, spent the last two seasons with Winnipeg of the Canadian Football League, where he caught 114 passes for 1,846 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Lockett was drafted in the seventh round by Tampa Bay in 2002. He was cut by the Buccaneers but spent most of last season on the 49ers practice squad.

No, he was brought in for special plays as quarterback, he did not throw the ball to himself....
