Taylor Montiel, son of Tony and Kimberly Montiel, is a sophomore at Brentwood Academy and this week’s Kerr & Co. Realty Athlete of the Week.
He is a member of the Baseball Team and plays the positions of pitcher and outfielder.
Montiel started playing baseball in little league when he was only four years old. Around the age of eight or nine, he said, he joined a travel team and it became a sport he knew he wanted to seriously pursue.
When asked what inspires him to train and compete he said, “My teammates… to do it for them and to try to win.”
One of his biggest role models is a senior leader on the football team, Jack Victory. He said he appreciates his attitude and the help he provided as a senior with more experience in the sport.
Montiel describes himself as competitive and smart. Outside of baseball, he enjoys spending time with his family.
After graduating from Brentwood Academy, he will head to Mississippi State to continue his baseball career.
