Oklahoma commit Stanvon Taylor wins Gatorade award

by Scott Wright Published: November 29, 2012

Oklahoma commit Stanvon Taylor of Tulsa East Central was named the state’s Gatorade Football Player of the Year Thursday.

Two days before he and his Tulsa East Central squad faces Carl Albert for the Class 5A state championship, standout Stanvon Taylor was named Oklahoma’s Gatorade Football Player of the Year on Thursday.

Verbally committed to Oklahoma as a defensive back, Taylor has four interceptions this year, returning one for a touchdown. He has over 1,000 receiving yards with 15 touchdowns, with two rushing scores and a kickoff return TD. On top of that, he threw for a pair of touchdowns on 3-of-6 passing.

First-year Tulsa East Central coach Bobby Klinck won the same award in 2001 as a high school player at Jenks.

Taylor, 5-foot-11, 175 pounds, is the No. 2 player in The Oklahoman’s Super 30 state recruiting rankings, behind fellow OU commit D.J. Ward.

Tulsa East Central and Carl Albert will play for the 5A title at 7:30 Saturday night at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater.
