Lloyd Nichols
Frisco High School
Teacher and Coach

In Frisco ISD, Lloyd Nichols impacted many students on the field, in the classroom and the community. He was the class sponsor for several years in support of various grade levels - he was always ready to support student growth in and out of the classroom. As a trusted adult on the campus, he made himself available as a counselor and mentor for students well past graduation.

He coached football, track & field, and basketball. As a head football coach, he led the team to be District Champions four of his first five years. He coached the District’s first Team All-State Player, Larry “Red” Cross in 1963. The following year, he was actively involved in ensuring the integration of FISD schools in the fall of 1964.

He was known for his moral integrity and follow-through - his word was his bond. If he told you he thought you were capable of something, you knew it was genuine encouragement. He was always willing to help students reach their goals. For example, when a student needed more hours for driver’s education, he provided opportunities for them to get behind the wheel with him at their side. Several adults who were his students have stayed in touch with him over the years and count him as a friend and mentor for more than six decades.

Lloyd and his wife raised a family in the Frisco ISD and were actively involved in the Methodist Church and area community events. An endowment scholarship has been set up in Coach Nichols honor. Donate to the Coach Lloyd Nichols Scholarship Fund
