Collin Taylor, son of Daniel and Marlena Taylor, is a senior at Brentwood Academy and a member of the Varsity Football Team.
He plays the positions of defensive back and wide receiver. Taylor said that one of the biggest highlights came towards the beginning of the season, when they beat the Christian Brothers in the playoffs.
Taylor said that his family is filled with passionate football fans and players. He said of his start in the sport, “I had family that played at LSU and I wanted to be like them.”
When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing he said, “I get inspired on how hard my brother worked and I wanted to be just like him.”
His brother, Daniel, played football at Brentwood Academy and went on to play in college as well. He said that Daniel is one of his biggest role models and motivators.
“He taught me so much and always did things to his best ability,” he said.
When he’s not on the football field, he enjoys playing video games and spending time with friends and family.
After graduating from BA this spring, he plans to continue his football career in college. He is also considering a career in Paleontology.
