Dale Lloyd II had already lifted weights with his teammates when he took the field in the Texas heat for what would be the final workout of his life.
It was Sept. 24, 2006, the day after the Rice football team suffered a humiliating 55-7 loss to Florida State. Rice coach Todd Graham cancelled practice for most of the team, but Lloyd and other underclassmen who didn't play much against FSU were told to report for Sunday conditioning.
After hitting the weights, the group lined up outside to run. Court records provide a disturbing account of what came next.
