Thread: Hudson Taylor to coach at Columbia

    Default Hudson Taylor to coach at Columbia

    Seems like a great fit. Really smart guy around really smart kids.

    Head coach Brendan Buckley has announced that three-time All-American Hudson Taylor has joined the Columbia wrestling staff. While at Columbia, Taylor will work primarily with the upper weights as a volunteer coach.

    "We are real happy to add Hudson Taylor, one of the nation's premiere 197 pounders over the last several years," said Buckley, the Andrew F. Barth Head Coach of Wrestling. "As a three-time NCAA All-American, Hudson brings tremendous credentials with him, and will make an immediate impact on our upper-weights. Furthermore, we believe he will be an incredible recruiting tool for us, as any upper-weight wrestler will be hard-pressed to find a better workout partner than Hudson."

    While competing at Maryland, Taylor was named the Atlantic Coastal Conference Wrestler of the Year in both 2007-08 and 2009-10, after winning the 197 pound title at the conference tournament. In his other two seasons, 2007 and 2009, Taylor finished second in his weight at the ACC's.

    On the national level, Taylor was equally impressive. He finished third in the country in 2008 and 2009, and fourth as a senior in 2010. He is tied for fifth in career pins in the all-time NCAA record books with 87. At Maryland, he holds the school record for career pins (87), career wins (165), and pins in a single-season (24).

    Taylor's resume is equally as decorated off the mat as well. The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2007-08 and 2009-10, he was a three-time selection to the All-ACC Academic Team, and a three-time member of the UMD Academic Honors Deans List. Most recently, he received an Atlantic Coastal Conference Weaver-James-Corrigan Post-Graduate Scholarship. In 2009, Taylor was one of six student-athletes from Maryland to earn the ACC Community Service Award in 2009.

    Taylor graduated from the University of Maryland in May 2010 with a degree in Interactive Performance Art.

    Pretty sure he actually invented/started that major at the school.

    Good move for both parties involved.

    Shane, I believe you're right about the degree.. and that it is a win/win for Mr Taylor and for Columbia U.

    Must be a real red-letter week at the Taylor-Wilde household. Hudson posted at Facebook that his fiancee just got a paper published in a NASA journal.

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    He made the major and designed the curriculum and had to defend it before a bunch of Maryland administrators.

    As far as a mental midget as myself goes -NOT a lot of difference between magic and what goes on at NASA.
