Taylor has one sibling, a younger brother Carson.

Taylor is sometimes called “T” by his family and friends.

Taylor’s favorite sport is football; his favorite movie is Friday Night Lights; his favorite musicians are Nelly and Florida Georgia Line; and his favorite saying is “No regrets.”

When “T” was younger, he imagined himself as a pro football player or a CIA agent.

Taylor’s most memorable moment is State wrestling his senior year.

The people who have inspired “T” the most are his parents because they taught him to never settle for anything short of his goals.

Taylor’s favorite childhood memory is playing football with Cory Eskra when they were little.

While in high school, “T” has been involved in football, wrestling, and golf.

“T’s” greatest achievement is placing seventh at the state wrestling tournament his senior year.

Taylor is currently employed at Maynards in Akron.

“T’s” most embarassing moment is the time he called Chet Willer’s cows horses.

Taylor’s favorite pastime is hanging out with friends.

If Taylor could relive one moment of his life, it would be wrestling at the State tournament.

What “T” likes most about high school is being able to see his friends every day.

If Taylor could give any advice to underclassmen, it would be, “Get involved as much as you can, and have fun.”

Taylor’s favorite excuse for not turning in his homework on time is, “You said it was due tomorrow.” Also, his favorite reason for being tardy is, “I was talking to Coach Stick.”

While in high school, Taylor’s favorite class has been Desktop Publishing with Mr. Andrew Thonstad because it is a fun class, or any class with Mr. Kim Meerdink.

After high school, Taylor plans to graduate from a four-year college with a degree.
