College and Amateur
Taylor grew up in Miami, Florida, where he was a 1997 and 1998 All State and 2000 second team All American soccer player at Gulliver Preparatory School. He played college soccer at the University of Michigan from 2000 to 2003., and spent the 2003 collegiate off-season with the Michigan Bucks of the USL Premier Development League.
Taylor was drafted in the third round (25th fifth overall) of the 2004 MLS SuperDraft by the Colorado Rapids, but he was not offered a contract by the team, and he returned to play for Bucks for the 2004 and 2005 PDL seasons. In 2005, he was named the PDL Defender of the Year.
Following the Bucks’ elimination from the 2005 PDL play offs, Taylor signed with the Rochester Rhinos of the USL First Division. He played one game with the Rhinos in 2004 and then three games in 2005. On March 30, 2007, he signed a one year contract with an option for a second year with the Minnesota Thunder of the USL First Division.
In 2013, Taylor signed with Detroit City, and scored on a penalty kick in his second game.
