The Austin area is known for its high school football talent in the state of Texas. Lake Travis High is one school in particular that continues to produce big time Division 1 prospects. Taylor Doyle is a 6-4, 265 pound offensive tackle for the Cavaliers that the Aggies will keep their eye on next year. Doyle attended the Lone Star Showdown Thursday night and he came away pleasantly surprised.

"It was my first time at Kyle Field and it was a lot different than any other college I have visited. I liked it and I have a lot of friends that go there now. You could feel the emotion on the field. The stadium is louder than any other I have ever been to and the facilities were outstanding."

College recruiters certainly noticed the tackle even when he was an undersized sophomore, so it is clear now that Doyle is on the recruiting radar of virtually every area team, including some regional powers. Taylor has some big time offers on the table already with offers from Arizona, Baylor, Texas Tech, and Tulsa.

It's no secret that the Austinite would like to play for the school he grew up watching.

"I really do like Texas a lot because I grew up in Austin and have been going to their games since I was a kid, but I want to give every school a fair shot."

Even though Doyle claims he will give every school a fair shot, his feelings toward A&M are somewhat biased.

"Really to tell you the truth I don't know if I could live with myself being an Aggie growing up in Austin. I did really like their school and they gave Texas a run for their money so you never know. I will look into A&M and give them a fair shot."

Taylor is looking for a school with good academics and a place where he can come in and play early.

"I want the chance to be a 2-3 year starter."

What makes the Lake Travis Cavalier such a dynamic and powerful offensive tackle is his size and footwork.

"I have been blessed with my size and speed. I love the game of football and I have great coaches that have been able to excel my game to where it is now. My foot work has improved tremendously over the past year, and again it goes back to having great coaches. I still need to get stronger because you can never be strong enough at the lineman position. "

The Lake Travis Cavaliers have cruised through their first 3 playoff games, and play their fourth round game this Friday against Alamo Heights.
