A captain and tackle on Carnegie Tech’s 1926 football team that beat an undefeated Notre Dame team, 19-0, Lloyd Yoder was the first Carnegie Tech football player to be chosen as an All-American. Yoder was inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame in 1982. Many reporters have cited that the defensive play of Yoder played a major factor in Tech’s win over the Irish.
