More About David “Magic Man” Taylor, son of Dave and Kathy Taylor, was born in Reno,NV but raised in St. Paris, Ohio and won his four Ohio State titles for Paris-Graham High School, where he also won the prestigious Dave Schultz National Award while earning High Honors. He’s a Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Major with a Business Minor and a 3.5 GPA. He relaxes sometimes with a Frisbee and a chipotle meal, while listening to Eminem, and Rap. He got caught and pinned in the NCAA final at 157, last March, but that was his only loss of the season and didn’t dim the luster of his astonishing Freshman achievements recognized in many awards including Big 10 Freshman and Wrestler of the Year and Penn State’s Outstanding Wrestler. It’s hard to imagine a greater honor than being named the best on a team of stars that became the NCAA Champs of 2011. His career numbers are a testament to Taylor’s dominance throughout a landmark collegiate wrestling career. He leaves Penn State as a member of four NCAA Championship teams and four Big Ten Championships teams. Taylor went 34-0 this season to end the year as the nation’s lone unbeaten Division I wrestler and closed out his career with a 134-3 record. His 97.8 career win percentage included an all-time Penn State best 53 pins (ties a school record), 42 technical falls and 30 majors, meaning 125 of his 137 career matches were won by a major or better. Taylor never lost in a dual meet and was a perfect 56-0 all-time against Big Ten competition. This past week it was announced that David Taylor is one of five athletes nominated for a 2014 ESPY award as Best Male College Athlete of the Year, award sponsor ESPN announced Tuesday. The awards, presented for outstanding achievements in sport by ESPN, will be presented on Wednesday, July 16 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern on ESPN.
