Lights.Camera.Action. Fresh out of a photo shoot, defensive back Jamar Taylor is posed for a big senior season. A highly touted recruit with various big name offers, Taylor chose to instead attend Boise State University. With a bit of a chip on his shoulder and something to prove, he impressed coaches enough to come in and play as a true freshman. Though used mostly on special teams and occasionally in the nickel package, Taylor showed some flashes of greatness. During his second season he was sidelined due to a knee injury, forcing him to trade his blue jersey in for a Redshirt. What can be a major set back for most only added to his quest to be the best.
After attacking rehab with the same approach he did with football, Taylor was able to come back and earn the starting job as a Redshirt sophomore. The rest you can say is history. With two years ofstarting experience under his belt and highlights such as his 100-yard interception return against Arizona State in the 2011 Maaco Bowl, Taylor is ready. Standing at 5’11 and 195lbs with blazing speed, he is able to physically dominate receivers all over the field. His blue-collar approach to the game separates him from most in his class and places him in elite ranking. A native of San Diego, California, he wants nothing more than to follow in the footsteps of his fellow Helix High alumni Reggie Bush. Countless hours of film study, footwork, and the tedious task of taking care of your body are all elements that have Taylor ready to take the next step in his game. His hard work in the classroom has paid off as well as he is set to graduate this May with a degree in Communications. As a senior captain and leader of the defense, the expectations are high for this upcoming season. He strives to compete in every aspect of his life and this season will serve as only another obstacle in his life he has to overcome.
