A Little More from Coach DJ Taylor

What did you major in?

I studied psychology throughout undergrad. Finished with a degree in general Psychology and minor in Social Entrepreneurship (non-profits). After graduating early, I decided not to return immediately to school and spent the following semester “training” for the next level. I am now in the process of applying for graduate school. Overall the timing is right, I am more focused and have a clear vision.

Why do you do what you do?

My mom is an educator. She serves in an administrative roll. I guess you could say coaching/teaching is in my blood. I enjoy helping others learn to improve themselves and seeing them later pass the torch in their various arenas. “Teach a man to fish…”

What keeps you going?

My dad continues to compete weekly in local men’s basketball leagues, and my mom continues to instruct and take fitness classes. My parents have instilled in me the importance of waking up and doing what you love. So far, each morning, I have woken up.
