As for hobbies and interests, Dr. Taylor is a sports enthusiast. Having played several sports in high school and starting out playing football in college, he continued playing baseball, softball, basketball, golf, and most anything else with a ball, recreationally through and after dental school. Golf became his main pastime where as a member of the Dallas Atheltic Club he was the 2001 President's Cup winner and partnered in the 2001 Club Four Ball championship. He was also a Texas Amatuer qualifier in 1998. His other sports hobby in recent years has become radio and internet broadcasting for Rockwall-Heath High School's football and baseball teams.
