Coach Scott Kirkpatrick on his All-Star “Taylor is an outstanding on and off court leader for our team. He is a dynamic scorer for us able to score in a variety of ways,  and he is also an outstanding rebounder and defensive player for our team.  Taylor is very coachable, always looking for ways to improve his game, and we have been very pleased that he was able to re-join the basketball program in January. Since his return, Our confidence and consistency have greatly improved and now that he is healthy, I anticipate he will provide us with a big lift in the MCAC playoffs this weekend. ”
