Taylor Named CIAA Linebacker of the Week


CHARLOTTE, NC – Winston-Salem State University sophomore linebacker Ta'Shaun Taylor was named the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Linebacker of the Week, Monday afternoon. The honor comes after a terrific performance in leading the Rams to a 23-20 road win over the Tuskegee Golden Tigers, last Saturday.

Taylor had a tremendous overall game against the Golden Tigers. He finished the game with five total tackles (three solo) with two sacks for nine yards, a forced fumble and an interception. Behind his effort, the Rams were able to hold the Golden Tigers to just 20 points and 245 yards of total offense at home.

The Rams will return to action, Saturday, when the team returns to the road to open CIAA play against the Virginia Union Panthers. The game is set for a 1:00 p.m. kickoff.
