Doug Taylor


How I am involved in service in my community and why these efforts are important to me:

Begining my freshman year, for one week in the summer, I attend Lend A Hand for Appalachia. The organization takes high school students to Appalachia areas in West Virginia and helps those in need. I have built ramps for the elderly. Put in a new floor for a needy person. Put a roof on a womans house that had been leaking for years. This experience has given me the opportunity to help many needy people by doing things for them that they can't do themselves. I am very proud of my accomplishments in helping these people. I plan on continuing this through my college years. I am also an active volunteer for my church. I especially enjoy delivering fish orders during the lenten season.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. One example of how I have demonstrated leadership in both areas:

I try to present myself in a professional manner on the field. I like to get my teammates pumped and ready to go for the games. Off the field I take the time to acknowledge the young kids that come to watch us play every week. Some of the kids are huge fans of our high school team. I put together a few teammates and attended an 8 year olds birthday party. We presented him with a signed ball from the team. I really enjoy trying to be a good role model to these young football fans.

How I pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete:

It is my duty to stay in shape and live a clean and healthy lifestyle. No drug or alcohol use are tolerated by a healthy athlete.
