But Friday night against Coweta, Taylor showed why he's considered the best skill-position player in the state.
Taylor had five catches--three for touchdowns--for 105 yards in the Cardinals 35-28 win.
Taylor's most memorable play, though, came on defense in the closing two minutes of the first half.
With his team down 21-13 and Coweta looking to tack on a field goal, Taylor caught Caleb Thomas' 38-yard field goal try just beyond the line of scrimmage and took it 85 yards for a touchdown.
Taylor then added another touchdown reception by the time the first half was over.
RB COMMIT WINS WILD ONE
Sooners running back commit Keith Ford turned in a huge night for Cypress (Texas) Ranch in its 64-63 overtime win over Langham Creek.
Ford rushed for 268 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries and returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown in the wild game.
Ford scored on an 11-yard touchdown run in overtime and then added the two-point conversion to give Cypress Ranch the win in a game that featured 1,237 yards of total offense.
Ford also fumbled three times in the win.
