Not only is he the Jayhawk Conference offensive player of the year, he’s also a conference champion. Yes indeed, things are going great for El Dorado (Kan.) Butler County C.C. three-star quarterback Zac Taylor.
“We’re going to be playing in the national championship game,” Taylor, who is 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, said. “We find out tomorrow officially who we play and what bowl it is. I think it’s going to be down in Coffeyville. The No. 1 team, which we are, usually gets to host the title game, so we’ll probably be down there in Coffeyville.
“How sweet would it be to win the title on their field?”
Indeed it would be. And Taylor and his teammates dispatched Coffeyville for the second time this past weekend, giving Butler County the league championship and a perfect record.
Now that the regular season and playoffs are behind him, Taylor is starting to narrow his focus on the recruiting front. With heavy attention from Memphis, Marshall and Troy, it looks like a decision might not be that far out.
“Troy just offered me, and we’re working on an official visit,” Taylor said. “It looks like it’s going to be December 10 for them. I’m going to Marshall next weekend for sure. I’m trying to get back in touch with the coaches from Memphis. They play on Friday night, so I’m trying to get out there for a visit. If I don’t make it this weekend, then I’ll go the weekend after the Marshall visit.”
Taylor said those teams look to be the top three at this point, but he also pointed out that he’s open to any other teams that might “pop” in the picture.
