Taylor is a Saskatoon native who attended Bishop James Mahoney (2007/2008 5A Provincial champions) before going on to play post-secondary basketball in the ACAC for 2 years at Medicine Hat College. He has represented Saskatchewan at the national level and was part of the University of Saskatchewan Jr. Huskies Program during his teenage years. Since shifting his focus more to academics (currently working on his MSc at the UofS), Taylor has helped coach 4 seasons of successful Sr. Boys basketball at Bishop James Mahoney. He is a passionate coach who believes that the adversity faced on the basketball court translates to successful life skills off the court.
