32 MOUNTAINEER — Feb. 17, 2012Mountaineer Athlete of the Week Joshua Taylor Intramural basketball player Joshua Taylor admits he wasn’t much of a football or basketball player growing up.“I was garbage,” Taylor said of his football skills as a freshman in high school. He said he wasn’t much of a basketball player either. Taylor dedicated his time over the summer honing his basketball skills and made the varsity team as a sophomore. What is your favorite personal moment in sports? I once coached a team that only had two or three players that had any kind of basketball playing experience. We weren’t very good in the beginning of the season, but I took them to the court and started working with them in practice. When the season was over, we placed second in our league. If you could spend a day with any athlete who would it be and why? I have always thought it would be good to be able to talk to Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics. He plays big down low and since I’ve always been a perimeter player I would like to know what it’s like to be able to play as a big man. If you could change anything about sports what would it be? I would like to see a system in place where the (professional) athletes did not get paid as much money. What is the one thing you’ve always wanted to do in sports but have not done yet? I have always wanted to play college sports and I think I’m going to try to do that. I would also like to play for the All-Army team. People who don’t know me would be surprised to know that … I can actually play basketball. People think that because I’m white, tall and lanky I can’t play basketball. One of the players we played here in (intramurals) thought I could not play ball and I had to show him up a little bit.
