SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah Ute and Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Devin Lloyd was nominated for the NFL’s Salute to Service Award on Wednesday.
The Salute to Service Award highlights the efforts by members of the NFL community to honor and support U.S. service members and veterans.

Earlier this year, the former Utah star partnered with USAA, a sponsor of the NFL, to discuss his parents’ service and what it means to him.
“So my father served in the military for 30 years. My mom was in for 10 years as well. My mom and my dad met in the Navy,” Lloyd replied. “Their service to me is everything just because they’re really sacrificing themselves for the country and for the greater good. So I learned so much about really just being a good person.”
An individual or group was nominated for each NFL team. Lloyd was selected for Jacksonville.
Both of Lloyd’s parents served in the military.

After missing weeks four and five with an injury, Lloyd has suited up for the Jaguars in each of the last three games. Jacksonville pulled out the win in all three games with Lloyd back on the gridiron.
Lloyd posted 29 total tackles against the Colts, Saints, and Steelers.
