The 2012 campaign began as one of the best in recent memory. After an early overtime loss to Utah State, Utah rolled up a seven-game unbeaten streak. One of the results was a 1-0 home win against the BYU Cougars, a team that later made it into the late stages of the 2012 NCAA tournament.

That early season success was in large part due to the work of this Kaysville native.

Taylor started 17 of the Utes' 18 matches and led the Utes in points, assists, shots and shots on goal. She scored a dramatic 98th-minute overtime winner against Washington State, assisted the game-winner against Texas and scored against Portland State and Oregon.

An integral part of Utah soccer's attack, Taylor is definitely a Ute footballer to watch this fall.

You must have missed the comment on the Taylor Sander snippet that said Ben won't play this year because he's serving an LDS mission. :)
