USA Hockey Pacific District
Taylor is on the rt. side of picture in white jersey.

In February, Taylor was invited to the Washington State USA hockey camp in Wenatchee. The best players in his age group were invited to attend. He did a great job and was selected to represent Washington State at the Pacific District Select Camp in Kent, WA at the end of April. The states that participated at this camp were the best from WA, CA, OR, AL, & NV. Taylor happened to be the only one from the Tri-Cities. We were so proud of him being selected - his hard work & determination payed off. He did a pretty good job in Kent,WA (Pacific Camp)- i personally think that going into the camp he felt that he didn't think that he was as good as the other players. But, after we gave him a little "pep talk" he stepped up his game like we know he can do and he did great! But, unfortanetely - he's learned that his game needs to be "on" ALL of the time! And he fell a little short in making it to the National Team that goes to NY. However, he was selected as the "next top 20" player from the Pacific District to participate in the Kent (Ohio) Select Festival to compete against some other regional players. This camp is in July - we are praying about whether or not he should attend...
