Taylor shares his
story at leadership
Daily StaffReporter
On Saturday afternoon,
about 100 undergraduate stu-
dents and University employ-
ees gathered in Couzens
Residence Hall for the Student
Housing Leadership Confer-
ence featuring speeches from
University administrators and
Michigan football legend Billy

E. Royster Harper, the
University's vice president of
student affairs, presented the
"Connecting the Dots" theme
of the conference, referenc-
ing the future implications of
present decisions.
Harper went on to intro-
duce Taylor, followed by a
preview for "Perseverance,"
a movie biography about his
life and battle with alcohol-
ism. Following the film, Taylor
explained how these experi-
ences helped mold him into
who he is today.
Taylor was a football legend
at Michigan, as the All Time U
of M record holder for average

rushing yards per game at 102
yards, a three-time All-Ameri-
can Running Back and Michi-
gan's MVP in 1971, according
to his website.
However, his life went on
a downward spiral on Jan. 4,
1972. Just a few days after his
final game as a Wolverine, his
mother passed away from a
heart attack.
"All I could do was cry,"
Taylor said. "It really knocked
me down."
Taylor said he sunk into
depression, but attended the
Atlanta Falcon's training camp
