Pulaski’s Taylor Brock inks with Union College

Somerset — Last Friday afternoon Union College gained a new athlete, Taylor Brock signed with the Lady Bulldogs to play basketball on the JV team. Brock had played at Pulaski since she was in the eighth grade.

“Taylor is great kid, she comes to practice and works hard everyday,” began coach Brian Miller. “She does all the small things on the court that can’t be coached. The thing about Taylor is that she will give you everything that she’s got every second that she’s on the court.”

Since her freshman year Brock has led the Lady Maroons in charges taken, she has also ranked in the state for several seasons. Brock is a defensive player and helped Pulaski out with rebounding this past year.

In the 2012-2013 season Brock’s highest scoring game was against Williamsburg. Brock had 15 points and shot 60% from beyond the arc and she Shot 62% for the night.

In her junior season Brock’s high game was 12 points coming against Scott high. Brock was the role player of the team and did the jobs that a lot of players didn’t, hustle points show up in the minutes played column not the made baskets column.

“We have a good basketball program at Union, we have been in five of the last seven conference tournament championship games,” Tim Curry head coach at Union stated. “We are looking to have not only good players but good people in our program and she certainly fits that profile.”

Coach Curry as been at Union for several years and has even won a couple NIAI division II National Championships. The most recent of those coming in the 2011-2012 season.

Besides a great teammate, a hard worker and good leader Brock is also an excellent student who recently received the Work Ethics Seal based on grades and attendance.

“Its great to have the opportunity to continue playing something that I have loved since fifth grade,” Brock stated. “I never thought that I would get this chance and I’m thankful that coach Miller was able to help me.”

Brock has played on the varsity squad at Pulaski since the eighth grade and she will be missed as a Lady Maroon but she will still have the opportunity to play the game she loves and fulfill her dreams.
