Recruiting is really starting to heat up for three-star El Dorado (Kan.) Butler County C.C. quarterback Press Taylor.
However, the 6-foot-2, 195-pounder has something he like to finish first before taking care of that – winning a national championship.
Butler County will play for its second straight national championship game at 1 p.m. Saturday against Snow College in the Top of the Mountains Bowl. Taylor has led the Grizzlies to a 10-1 record this season and Saturday's game is about as big as it gets.
"There is nothing new about playing for a title at Butler," Taylor said. "We did it last year and that was a good thing as it's helped us really prepare for this year. We took it a little easy last week, as we worked hard at just making sure we were doing things fast and together. This week, we're getting geared up.
"They have a defense that's really talented. It seems like they play 40 different guys. They keep their defensive guys really fresh. They're a hardnosed physical defense. We're going to have to come ready to go because they're going to come at us really hard."
Schools are really starting to come at Taylor hard off the field.
He has an official visit lined up to Marshall on Dec. 11. Butler coach Troy Morrell also said a few other programs are starting to show more interest also.
"My coaches told me Arizona State and Louisville have requested film here recently," Taylor said. "I think Marshall is talking about an offer. I've only talked to them once this week, and it seems like things are starting to move really forward. They said they watched my tape and then called me 30 minutes later because they liked it so much.
"It would be a great program to get involved with. I think it could be a good place for me. We'll see how things play out on the visit."
As a sophomore, Taylor was named second-team all-Jayhawk Conference. In seven conference games, he threw for 1,191 yards and 14 touchdowns and completed 69 percent of his passes.
