The 2019 football season started strong for the Irondale Knights. They were 2-1 and looking to build off their seven-win season from the year before. Then things started to go wrong for the Knights – namely injuries. Included in those injuries was junior Trenton Taylor. Despite missing half the season, Taylor made an impact – not only in the playoffs but also with college programs.
"The season started good," Taylor said. "Then, injuries hit, and a lot started to go wrong. The season didn't go the way we wanted it to."
Health had a ton to do with the team's performance.
"When we were healthy, we were just having fun – not overthinking things," Taylor explained. "When we were healthy, we were confident. We were running the ball when we were winning games. When we were losing, we had turnovers, and the defense was always on the field."
Taylor's health was an issue too.
"The season went pretty good – it could have gone better," Taylor admitted. "I played most of the season, not at one hundred percent. I ended up fracturing my tibia. I was able to come back for the playoffs."
