Loyd Wainscott’s relationship with Frank Medina
by Barbara Wainscott

Loyd loved Frank but he respected Medina Sessions! Frank decided Loyd gained too much weight his freshman year and when he sent him home for the summer he gave him strict instructions to "not eat anything white". Loyd followed his instructions to the T. When he got back for two-a-days Coach Royal saw him and said "My God! Where did you spend the summer...in a concentration camp?!" and he put him on the scales. He had lost down to 197 lbs. Loyd told him what Frank had instructed and Coach yelled "FRANK!"...as Frank went scurrying around the corner, no where to be found. From then on Frank took Loyd under his wing to bring him back. He would take him into the back room to tape his ankles where there was air conditioning and give him Mama Medina's cookies and milk. He even gave me an interview for the school paper for my journalism requirements and gave me a hand-woven peasant purse from the old country. He had a very special place in Loyd's heart, as I'm sure he did in many a Longhorn player.
