Ben Davis High School Quarterback Named IndyStar Mr. Football

Reese Taylor, the quarterback for the Ben Davis Giants, is the 2017 IndyStar Mr. Football. It is the state’s highest individual honor for a senior high school football player.

The Star referred to Taylor as “the spark to an offense that averaged 501 yards and 47.4 points per game.” Taylor has committed to play football at Indiana University next year.

The Giants won the 2017 Class 6A state football championship on November 25.

“‘I have to pinch myself right now,'” Taylor told the Star. “‘A state championship and Mr. Football for Ben Davis.'”
