Out of this World
Jonathan Taylor is not your average running back. In fact, he almost wasn't a running back at all. Taylor only started playing football because his cousin, who was the same age, began to get involved in the sport. But Taylor's true passion was in the sky, amongst the stars, so it only makes sense that he would become one himself.
Taylor was gifted a telescope by his family as a senior in high school, considering his love for astrophysics. He opted to double major in both astrophysics and physics at Wisconsin, so a career in science was certainly a viable path if the Wisconsin Badger didn't turn pro. Outside of science, Taylor also enjoys yoga and the variety of stretches he can do before practices and games.
He is known for being a person that is wise beyond his years, and much more than just a star NFL running back.
