Taylor also is one of the Rebel basketball team’s leading scorers and helped the team reach the state quarterfinals a year ago. This year, the Rebels are 16-5 overall and ranked No. 5 in the state.
Taylor joins Camden Allis and Zach Aird (North Alabama), Hunter Harvey (Cumberland), Zay Webber and Etijah Tharpe (Bethel University) as college-bound football Rebels.
The Rebels went 15-0 last year, 29-1 over the past two seasons.
