LSU tight end Mason Taylor has become a key contributor to the Tigers’ offensive success over the last few weeks. The true freshman quickly became the hero in the Bayou Bengals’ upset victory over Alabama, but to him that was just the introduction.
Taylor has been making highlight reel plays his entire career, and now the chance to do it on the biggest stage, it’s all he’s ever wanted. The son of NFL Hall of Famer Jason Taylor, it sets lofty expectations, but Mason is simply looking to create his own path.
There was a moment when it all clicked for the Tigers’ starting tight end for this program. A moment where they decided they wanted to take their game to the next level.
“I think we’ve been getting better every week, but after the Tennessee game we stepped it up,” Taylor said. “Pedal on the gas. I think we’ve been getting better every week and Jayden [Daniels] has been doing a great job of getting everybody on board and getting 1% better everyday and every week.”
