Taylor’s aims in coaching focus on maintaining a positive environment for athletes.
“I try to use humor to lighten the mood, and I do not take myself too seriously,” he says. “I feel like our student athletes have more on their plates than ever before, and sports should be an outlet for them to relieve stress and enjoy themselves. I also stress team work, dedication, and commitment. I want our athletes to learn lessons in cross country that will serve them well both here and wherever else they may end up.”
Taylor’s two brothers are also teachers and coaches at high schools in Fayette County.
