Taylor Brothers Have Talent

Ricky Taylor is a Tech graduate and most of his family attended the school in North Central Louisiana. He now resides in McComb, MS where his sons are making headlines on the sports pages.

The Taylor brothers, Nathan, Jordan, and Caleb attend Parklane Academy in McComb, MS. "Nathan plays baseball and soccer," said Mr. Taylor. "Jordan plays everything; he lettered in five sports."

On the baseball diamond, Nathan and Jordan bring a different set of skills to the table. "Jordan is the better athlete," explained their dad. "He plays shortstop and he is a right handed pitcher. Nathan will be playing at the next level. He's a left handed pitcher with good control."

Jordan put up strong numbers on the football field last season. Despite being the team's third receiver, he led his team in receptions and yards. "He doesn't drop anything," added Mr. Taylor. "He really had a chance to put up even better numbers this year but their quarterback just transferred away two weeks ago. There's a chance Jordan could play quarterback this year."

Jordan is no stranger to playing multiple positions. He was an All-District cornerback last season and he also kicks and punts. Jordan runs a 4.6 in the 40 and recently attended a Louisiana Tech camp held in Baton Rouge. Jordan is fully qualified with a 27 on his ACT and a straight A average in the classroom.
