Taylor may enroll early

Scotland County defensive standout Hilee Taylor has helped the fighting Scots to an 8-2 record and a spot in the North Carolina High School Football Playoffs. The Scots open the playoffs at home Friday night against Northwest Guilford High School.

"I think we can win that game if we can play well on both sides of the ball," Taylor said.

An interesting note is that Hilee Taylor does not go by Hilee but rather Lano which is short for Delano (his middle name). This helps to avoid confusion with his father Hilee Sr.

Taylor was asked if he might enroll early. "I may enroll in January. I'm firmly committed to North Carolina. I should decide pretty soon if I will go to college early or not."

Taylor's presence would be a welcome addition in spring ball as the heels prepare for the 2004 season.
