Taylor received the Robert Mufson Sportsmanship Award in Boca Hoops today. He is great basketball player, but an even better kid. The description of the award is a pretty good picture of Taylor as a an athlete–he really loves the thinking part of the games as well as helping everyone on the team succeed.
Here is the description from the Boca Hoops website:
The Robert Mufson Sportsmanship Award is to be given to one player from each team. This player has shown the courage to be themselves. They have shown their love for the “game of basketball”, and have balanced the desire to win, with the enjoyment of playing the game. This player does not have to be the special athlete but rather a special person who understands the meaning of sportsmanship. A player who truly cares about others, such as players, either teammates or opponents, coaches, referees, and parents.
This award is a landmark in Boca Hoops tradition by recognizing a quality in our children other than pure athleticism.
