Taylor Runs Wild…and Hard

FOX Sports NEXT is in the streets this fall to bring you all the coverage from across the Midlands region. Recently, we spoke with Katy running back Adam Taylor to get his post game thoughts after a 41-6 win to the district title…

Players who perform at the highest level have a different system to gauge how well they are performing on the field. After talking with Katy (TX) running back Adam Taylor after a 41-6 win over Houston (TX) Memorial for the district title, he had some interesting post-game comments.

"I feel like the last two weeks I have come into myself. I'm working towards my strengths," Taylor said in regards to his recent performances. "All season there has been some great blocking by the offensive line."

No doubt about that. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Taylor has taken his game to yet another level and it is something he and some of the Katy assistant coaches have noticed lately. It's the notion that Taylor has been stronger for much longer during the games and he is coming into his rhythm much quicker in the latter games.

And if nothing else, this is the time to his strides as the playoffs begin starting next week.

"This was a great team win. We knew we would have to play hard because Memorial is a good team," Taylor said. "And the district championship is on the line. We are taking things one game at a time because if you take someone lightly, that's when opponents can sneak up on you."

So far, none have sneaked as Katy is 10-0 once again. In the game against Memorial, Taylor had 134 yards and a couple of touchdowns. Pretty nice showing as the team has plenty of momentum going into the postseason.

And while this season is the most important aspect for the moment, Taylor is taking some time out of this weekend to take in an official visit to a Big 10 program.

"Yes sir, I'm headed to Nebraska tomorrow. I want to go see that campus a lot because I heard it is like a sold-out crowd for like 50-years straight," Taylor said. "I feel like it will be a great atmosphere, similar to Katy."

The trip to Lincoln is Taylor's first of his official visits. So far this season, Taylor has over 1,300 yards and 22 touchdowns.
