(Taylor is the first on left on back row)
After a few rounds of evaluations (State & Regional/District), Taylor was chosen to represent the Pacific District Team as one of the best forwards in the Region (AL, WA, OR, CA, NV) at the Kent Select Festival in Kent, Ohio.
We are super proud of him to have worked so hard and to have been recognized for his hard work and talent:)
His Grandparents took him for us (see post/story below as to why). It sounds like he had a great time - he was with the team the entire time and stayed in the dorms at the university. He really enjoyed meeting the other boys from the other states and hanging out with fellow teammates Keanu Yamamoto & John Marzek... The team really came together and they went to the championships after Taylor made the game winning goal in the tied semi-final game (i will try to upload the video). The team took 2nd place after losing to Michigan.
So, Taylor has no hockey now until the end of August but continues his off ice workouts in preparation for an awesome year in Kent, WA again.
