Gover to play basketball for U of the Cumberlands


Somerset —

“We toured a couple of colleges and we prayed a lot, and I just felt like this was a golden opportunity for me,” said Gover.
“I had a great time over there when I went for my visit, and the coaches were all very nice to me and treated me really well.” continued the PC great. “I felt like with it being a school that’s fit more toward Christ, I would fit in really well there.”
Gover says he wants to get a little bigger and stronger before he heads over to The Cumberlands, and he will work to do just that.
“I’m going to stay in the weight room and try to get stronger over the summer,” said Gover. “However, I’m not saying I don’t have anything else to work on. I’m going to work on my ball handling and my shooting, and on every aspect of my game. I think as a player you’ve always got room to improve.”
As for the man that had the privilege to coach Taylor Gover during his outstanding high school career, his uncle and head coach at Pulaski County High School — Al Gover — says that he feels the Patriots got a very good basketball player to compete at the NAIA level.
“Taylor’s just a terrific player in all areas of the game,” stated Al Gover.
“He’s always willing to do exactly what you asked him to do,” added the PC coach. “We asked him to do a lot of things while he was here — scoring, distributing the basketball, rebounding — he did all those things well. He’s done a great job here at Pulaski. You’re not going to find a better person than Taylor Gover either. He’s top of the line character-wise, and Cumberland is getting one heck of a player.”
