The Trinity Episcopal football team has a new quarterback for the upcoming season. His name is Taylor Eggers, he is a transfer from Mills Godwin, who will reclassify to the Class of 2018.
The 6-4, 219-pounder will bring with him his first offer, from Virginia Union, but by the time he takes his first regular-season snap, he hopes to have a lot more.
“It felt great to get my first offer,” Eggers said. “I’m hoping for more to come. I just got to keep working out and keep doing good in school.
“The Virginia Union coaches were impressed with my footwork, accuracy, and arm strength, I greatly appreciate the offer as the Virginia Union coaching staff is awesome.”
The Panthers, under the direction of third-year coach Mark James, was 5-5 this past season, including a 4-3 record in the CIAA.
Eggers, with his sturdy frame, is more of a pocket passer than a duel threat. However, he does have enough mobility to move around and he adds to that with a strong, accurate arm.
“The Trinity offense, with the spread offense will all me to throw it around the field to the great wideouts and running backs we have in the slot,” he added.
Eggers is planning on staying busy this summer. He will be attending Coastal Carolina and then Liberty on July 14, Towson on July 16 and North Carolina on July 21.
Also, he will travel to VMI, VUVA-Wise, Norfolk State, Fairmont State, and Campbell among others.
The hard-thrower has received strong interest from UNC Charlotte, UVA-Wise and Maryland to date.
