My name is Taylor Curlin, and I am a senior in the class of 2016. I am a 6’5″, 274 lb defensive end and offensive tackle for Lyons Township High School in LaGrange, Illinois. I also wrestle in the winter on the varsity team to improve my conditioning and make me more athletic. My team competes in the West suburban Silver conference, which is known to be one of the most competitive conferences in the state of Illinois.
I have always been known to have an excellent work ethic. During my senior season, I was the only player to start on both sides of the ball, and I rarely came off the field. Hard work throughout the year lead to me being named to the first team All- Conference Varsity Football Team. During my junior season, I was one of only two juniors to play on the varsity team and to start all 10 games at right tackle. During that season, I went up against two first team all-state players, Nick Dillon (Stevenson) and Declan Ryan (Glenbard West). Against both players, I did not let up a sack or tackle. I am also a very hard worker in the classroom. I have a 4.3/ 4.0 weighted GPA and a 3.65/4.0 unweighted GPA. I have taken many challenging courses throughout high school, including many Advanced Placement courses and a large number of accelerated courses. My work in the classroom led to me being named to the All-Conference Academic Team for Varsity Football.
