Taylor will assist the Owls' coaching staff in a variety of roles, including work in offensive and defensive drills. He will also help with the field preparation at Reckling Park.
Prior to joining Rice Taylor played one season at Lamar University in Beaumont. Lamar finished as the Southland Conference tournament runner-up. He also competed at Navarro Junior College in 2003 and 2004. At Navarro he helped lead the Bulldogs to two conference championships and to the 2003 regional finals.
He was a three-year starting outfielder at Langham Creek High School, earning all-District 16-5A honors with a .320 batting average. Taylor led the Lobos to the state playoffs in 2002.
