Kaden Taylor has been a vital cog for his Sallie B. Howard School varsity boys basketball team this season, making him this week’s Farris & Thomas Law Attorneys Student-Athlete of the Week.
Playing as the “sixth man” for the Eagles, Kaden came off the bench to help spark Sallie B. Howard to home wins over Wake Prep and Iron Academy last week. The freshman scored five points and pulled down three rebounds in the Eagles’ 61-44 defeat of Wake Prep on Tuesday. In Friday’s 54-17 conquest of Iron Academy, Kaden had six points to go with four rebounds and a steal.
He has helped the Eagles run off to a 10-5 record in just their second season at the varsity level.
The son of Montekia Parker of Wilson and Jeffery Taylor of Raleigh, Kaden has a 3.7 GPA at Sallie B. Howard. He also runs cross-country in the fall and track in the spring for the Eagles.
