Vestavia Hills (AL) 2015 attack Peyton Taylor has made a commitment to play Division III lacrosse at Birmingham-Southern College.
Peyton Taylor ledger:
High School: Vestavia Hills High School, Vestavia Hills, Alabama
Graduation year: 2015
College Choice: Birmingham-Southern College (ConnectLAX college profile)
Club Affiliation: Lacrosse Academy of Birmingham (LAB)
Major Lacrosse Honors: Four year Varsity player; Four year starter; 2015 Team Captain, Southern Combat Lacrosse All-Star Team, Huntingdon Lacrosse Showcase All-Star Team, Georgia Lacrosse Showcase.
Why I chose BSC: “I chose Birmingham-Southern because I really like Coach (Casey) Kear and the goals he has set for his program. I am looking forward to having the opportunity to play for him and be a part of reaching those goals. Based on the team in place and the committed recruits in my class, I believe that the team will have a very successful future and I want to be part of that. I visited some great schools and talked with the coaches, but I just feel that Birmingham-Southern is the best fit for me academically as well as athletically.”
Outlook for high school team: “We played in the 2014 Alabama State Championship but came away with the loss. With 10 seniors and most of our starters returning this year we should have the leadership and experience for a successful season. Our team goal is to win the 2015 State Championship and we should be strong enough to do it.”
People to thank: “I would like to thank my parents for their encouragement and constant support.
“I would also like to thank Randy Nace, my high school head coach. He personally invested in making me a better player. He would meet me before practice and/or stay after to work with me. He was always encouraging, but really challenged me to work hard at getting better and stronger.”
Other schools considered: Piedmont, Huntingdon, Young-Harris, Elmhurst and Beloit
