Decorated linebacker commits to Saskatchewan

Huskies add a local, Saskatoon commit to their team.

When Bailey Taylor, a linebacker from Centennial Collegiate, joins the Saskatchewan Huskies for their 2017 season, he will be looking to add to his impressive resume of football achievements.

Taylor plays with the Centennial Chargers of the Saskatoon Secondary School Athletic Directorate. He was touted as a player to watch for the 2016 high school season by his head coach, Brent Keeler. Standing at 5’9, 191 lbs, the outside linebacker, who also plays running back, can run the forty-yard dash in 4.97 seconds. He can complete the 5-10-5 shuffle in 4.62 seconds and bench press 325 pounds.

“It was an easy choice. The Huskies is home. I’ve grown up around the Huskies and played U18 with a few of the guys and have trained with some others which also factored in. Its a first class team with great coaches and has great facilities and they are always a contender which made the choice easy,” Taylor said of his new team.

Due to the Huskies’ coaches involvement in the local, city and provincial teams, Taylor has had the opportunity to be coached by most of them over the years. “Coach Towriss being the winningest coach in CIS history and having the opportunity to play for him in the future with his experience is unreal. Talking with Coach Guebert and hearing about the Huskies history and future and knowing him from my minor football days, I’ve always wanted to play for these guys,” he said.

“There experience and passion for the team and program is exciting. Going in as a DB, I also had the opportunity to play for Huskies DB Coach Cody Halseth with Team SK U18, which is great as I am somewhat familiar with his style and expectations,” he added.

While the young football player is undecided about his future university program, he is interested in either psychology or business. His long-term plan is to go into law.

Throughout his career, he has won Defensive Player o the Year, Offensive Player of the Year, Team MVP, Leadership Award and an Iron Man Award. In 2012, he was the youngest player to be named a starter in the history of the varsity Chargers. In 2013, he was a captain for Team Saskatchewan North. In 2015 and 2016, he was named Defensive MVP for the Selects.

In 2012, he was part of Team Saskatchewan U16. In 2013, he played with Team Saskatchewan North U16. In 2014 and 2015, he made Team Saskatchewan U18 as a fifteen/sixteen-year-old respectively. In 2016, he was named to the South Saskatchewan Selections U16 squad.

Before Taylor joins the Huskies next season, he has some unfinished business with the Chargers. He said, “We are heading into the final week of the season undefeated and playing the other undefeated team for the #1 spot, so pretty focused on helping the Chargers win a city and provincial title, take it as far as we can this year so I can leave HS Football with a full heart.”
