had a highly productive NFL career. If it weren't for injuries I'd say he would've been one of the best running backs ever. It's highly debatable, but if you look at the numbers there would be a case for him. And the numbers don't lie.
His son Kelvin is aiming to carry on the legacy of his father. Taylor, who is a high school running back for Glades Day in Broward County, Florida, had a crazy game against Village Academy. He rushed for 426 yards in a 35-24 win.
That isn't his career high though. He had 437 yards against Jupiter Christian in a state playoff game last November. That puts Taylor a mere 655 yards away from the high school career rushing mark held by the NFL's all time leading rusher Emmitt Smith. And Taylor's only a junior, so that mark is sure to be broken, unless he is derailed by injury.Taylor still has a shot at the all time record held by Ken Hall of Sugar Land, Texas who holds the record with 11,232 yards.
Glades Day still has four games left this season plus possible playoff games. Add in he still has his senior season to play and he has a pretty good shot at breaking the record.
For Kelvin's sake let's hope that he doesn't suffer the same kind of injuries that cut short some of his father's seasons.

Whatever the reason -- be it formations, game plan, poor performance or anything in between -- Ochocinco has underwhelmed since joining the Patriots almost three months ago. Don't count Tom Brady among the worried. "Look, he's working hard at it," said Brady in his weekly appearance on The Dennis...
The Patriots released safety Ross Ventrone and CB Sterling Moore, two special teams who will likely become practice squad guys (again) when they clear waivers. No surprise. Ventrone is in a transaction every week.
But this one makes me wonder about the players on the Physically Unable to Perform list — RB Kevin Faulk (knee), DE Brandon Deaderick (shoulder) and DT Ron Brace (elbow...
The Patriots promoted cornerback Sterling Moore to the active roster Saturday, and in turn, they released defensive lineman Marcus Harrison. Moore had been on the practice squad since Oct. 5. Harrison, who was signed Friday, joined cornerback Phillip Adams among Patriots whose stay with the team this week lasted about 24 hours. The release of Harrison is likely an indication that...
Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo was on the field less than two weeks after suffering a sprained left medial collateral ligament in Oakland. The team termed Mayo as questionable for tomorrows game against the Cowboys, though he is not expected to play. Mayo also suffered a sprained MCL in the 2009 season opener, and rushed his return. He was not the same player for the rest of the...
The Patriots had just yanked the game from the Cowboys, earning a 20-16 victory thanks to a beautifully run two-minute drive by quarterback Tom Brady. It was Brady’s 32nd come-from-behind win over his career, one he capped by hitting TE Aaron Hernandez in the end zone for an eight-yarder.
It was pandemonium after that. Just not for the Cowboys. Afterward owner Jerry Jones spoke...
