Zach Taylor came to Horizon High School in the Spring of his freshmen year with a gifted athletic background in football and baseball.  Having never played catcher before coming to Horizon, Zach showed leadership qualities that every coach looks for in the position as well as being voted by his teammates one of three team captains of the freshmen baseball team.  Zach’s sophomore year at Horizon showed tremendous promise as he earned a spot on the varsity baseball roster in the Spring.  Unfortunately, his year was cut short one day before the baseball season started as he had major ankle surgery after suffering a season ending accident going hard for a baseball in the outfield.Zach is a versatile athlete on defense who is projected as an everyday catcher who can shutdown a running game with his great feet and strong arm.  He has the ability to make a difference in the middle of the line-up with his run producing power to go along with his short swing at the plate.  Zach salvaged the 2012 season by devoting himself to becoming an unbelievable teammate, leader, and focusing his energy on the mental side of becoming a professional catcher.  He shows great work ethic and has a tremendous drive to become great at his skill.  Zach displays rare qualities that all coaches are looking for in creating a winning environment.David Moore – Assistant Varsity Coach Horizon High School
SCOUTING REPORTS:
PG National Underclassman Showcase Session 1 12/1/12 5:30:53 PM

— C Zach Taylor (Steel #33, Horizon HS, Scottsdale, AZ): Taylor is very strong at 6-1/208 and it shows in his bat speed and power potential. He tends to get long to the ball looking for power but is strong enough that he really doesn’t need to lengthen his swing to drive the ball hard. Taylor also threw 82 mph and popped a 1.89 in drills, so he has catching tools as well.
