EUGENE, Ore. - Each month O Heroes sits down with one student-athlete to get to know them better off the field. This month’s O Hero of the Month is Johnathan Loyd, a senior guard on the men’s basketball team.
Johnathan is not only a star on the court, but also in the community. Last season’s Pac-12 Tournament MVP loves to have fun and strives to make others happy. His passion for giving back to the kids makes Johnathan an exceptional O Hero.
Most recently, Johnathan led his teammates to O’Hara Catholic Elementary School in Eugene to read to students, participate in a friendly Q&A about life as a student-athlete and also teach them some tricks on the playground courts.
Johnathan plans to graduate with a major in general social sciences, focusing in economics. Post graduation, he hopes to continue his success on the basketball court for as long as possible until becoming a coach. Johnathan also hopes to continue his work in the community by volunteering wherever he sees a need.
