Personal comments from Taylor-- Kicking
|I began kicking my senior year in high school the day before the first game of the season. The second day of my life ever kicking I was called upon to attempt a 41 yard game winning field goal against our cross town rivals, Shaw. At the time I was still unsure about the steps and exactly what to do. Unfortunently, I kicked it about 1 inch wide left. It went over the uprights and the refs hesitated while the crowd was going crazy because everyone had thought I had made it. That momment taught me a lot and forced me to continue kicking. I kicked part time for the rest of the season splitting the duties. I was later recruited by Millsaps College as a placekicker. My freshman year was a great experience. I am looking forward to my future. I will continue to work extremely hard on and off the field to excel my career. In 2011, one year after college, im still kicking.|
