TAYLOR TASKA
TEXAS A&M KINGSVILLE JAVELINAS

Coach Jason Gonzales on Taylor Taska:

"The impact that Taylor Taska has had on our program has been tremendous.  He is as talented a player as I have ever coached.  He has led our team and the entire Lone Star Conference in home runs and posted nine wins this season.  His future is as bright as anyone’s and we cant wait to see what type of impact he will make next year."

Taylor Taska’s value to the 2013 Javelinas went beyond just the prolific numbers he produced and the awards he won. After missing the 2011 season with an arm injury, the junior pitched just four innings as a redshirt sophomore. In 2013, he recovered fully enough to take over as the team’s second starter finishing second on the team with nine wins and a 3.32 ERA while bolstering an already solid rotation. Offensively, he was the co-Player of the Year in the LSC winning multiple all-region honors. He led the LSC in home runs with seven with 52 runs batted in and 126 total bases, while placing third in victories.
