Taylor led the Hopkinsville Tigers to a 9 win, 4 loss season, and a trip to the 3A regional championship game. Head Coach of the Hopkinsville Tigers, Dixie Jones, says that Emanuel is wide open in his recruitment. "He's just now starting to get correspondence," Jones stated. "Emanuel is just taking it all in."
At 6-foot and 190 pounds, Taylor has the build of the prototype running back. Taylor has only played football for two years. As a player, his major strength is his explosion. "He gets up to full speed at about his third step," said Jones. Jones also listed his balance as another major strength for his star tailback. "He's a straight ahead runner who doesn't make a lot of cuts," said Jones.
Jones says that he doesn't know where Taylor will camp this summer. He is currently participating on the Hopkinsville Tigers track team. Jones led the Tigers in rushing this year with aproximately 1700 yards in 13 games.
