Ramonce Taylor's Rebuilt Life

Updated: Thursday, July 17 2014, 03:34 PM CDT

Ramonce Taylor left Belton High School as the all-time career rushing leader.  Ten years later Taylor is back at the high school level, sticking around the sport he can't quit, and lucky he quit the life he had.


Only one player had more total yards than Ramonce Taylor in the national championship season of 2005, and even Vince Young marveled at what Taylor could do.


1,219 total yards and 15 touchdowns - including a first-half 30 yarder in that title game against USC.  NFL scouts were raving about Taylor.  They viewed him as a potential first-round pick in the NFL Draft.


Four months and ten days after Taylor became a national champion, he became a felon.  The UT star would plead guilty to felony possession of marijuana.  When Mack Brown paired that with his academic struggles, he had no choice but to kick Taylor off the team.  That started an even deeper downward spiral that two years later would land him in jail.


Taylor does continue living out his football dream - still playing in the arena league after a stint in the CFL.


More importantly, he's also living out his dream off the field.  Taylor has spent his last four years as a high school coach in Fort Worth, he's returned to Texas to finish his degree and he has a baby on the way.
