Gulliver Names Football Field After Sean Taylor(Updated with News Coverage)


Recommended Posts


Gulliver Prep announced Friday that it would name its football field in honor of its former alum and NFL star Sean Taylor.

Before joining the NFL, Taylor played football on the schools team as a Gulliver Raider. He eventually played on the UM's Hurricanes team and eventually with the Washington Redskins.

But Taylor's dreams came to a tragic end when five men drove from Fort Myers to rob Taylor's Palmetto Bay home in November of 2007. Prosecutors say during that botched robbery one of the suspects shot Taylor in the groin. He later died at Jackson Memorial Hospital because of the shooting. The five men are all in custody and face life sentences.

The dedication of the field is scheduled will take place at 3:30 p.m. Sept. 4th at 6575 N. Kendall Dr.

Taylor graduated from the preparatory school in 2001. He helped Gulliver win the Florida Class 2A State Championship in 2000, with a 14–1 record. At Gulliver, Taylor was a star on both sides of the ball, playing running back, defensive back, and linebacker. In 2007 he was named to the Florida High School Association's All-Century Team which selected the top 33 players in the 100 year history of high school football in the state of Florida.
