Shiloh played in five consecutive state championship games, winning state in 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010 and finishing as state runner-up in 2007. Floyd was the starting quarterback at Shiloh Christian from 1996-1998 under head coach Gus Malzhan, the current head coach for Auburn University.
During Floyd’s career in high school, he broke state and national passing records while leading his team to the school’s first state championship in 1998.
