Carli Lloyd grew up in Delran and played high school soccer at Delran High School. While still in high school, Lloyd played for W-League sides Central Jersey Splash in 1999, New Brunswick Power in 2000, and South Jersey Banshees in 2001.
She attended Rutgers University and played for Rutgers Scarlet Knights women’s soccer team from 2001 through 2004. She was coached by Glenn Crooks and was named First-Team All-Big East for four straight years. She was also named the 2001 Big East Rookie of the Year and the 2004 Big East Midfielder of the Year.
Before her senior year at Rutgers, Lloyd played for New Jersey Wildcats in 2004, on the same team as other NJ soccer all stars Kelly Smith, Manya Makoski, Tobin Heath, and Heather O’Reilly. She made only one appearance for the club.
She has a really cool and informative website that you should check out while you cheer for her and the rest of the US Women’s Soccer team in London: CarliLloyd.com.
We can watch US Women’s Soccer beginning July 25th and the medal games are on August 9th on NBC.
