Taylor's Comments: "Josh played well for us down the stretch last year, and rose to the challenge in the playoff series against Dartmouth. Throughout his Yale career, Josh has shown the ability to come up big in big games, and to go on a hot streak. He is approaching his senior year with great confidence and determination. He is very knowledgeable about the position, and approaches his training in a workmanlike manner.
