Coach Josh Taylor is starting his third year at West Hall High school as the offensive line and tight ends coach and his first as the JV head coach for the Spartans in 2022. He and his parents Eddie, and Tisha Taylor are long time pivotal pieces in the community since he started playing football as a Jr. Spartan when he was 8 years old. He is a proud alumni of West Hall High School. In his 4 years at West Hall he played under Coach Tony Lotti. Coach Krofton Montgomery was his offensive line coach who shaped him into the lineman he was. In those 4 years he was a 3 time 1st team all region, 3 time 1st team all area, and a 1 time all state Right tackle. He also won the Ultimate Spartan award his senior year, the only offensive lineman to win in the awards history. After High school he signed a scholarship to join the Shorter Hawks Football program and enjoyed a fruitful 2 years under head coach Zach Morrison and spent a brief stint as a student assistant. He attends the University of North Georgia and is seeking his teaching degree in Kinesiology. He comes back to the Hot Gates hoping to help develop and fine tune the most important position on the field.
