Many people heard the name Michael Taaffe for the first time during the 2019 6A Division II Championship game, when Austin Westlake captured their first title in nearly 25 years, but I've gotten to know Michael very well personally in the past few years. Michael dominated in Westlake's 24-0 win over Denton Guyer in AT&T Stadium, a performance that earned him Defensive MVP. To nobody's surprise, he is having more showings like that in his senior season.
Recently, I had a chance to catch up with Taaffe about a number of things, from the recruitment process, to his legacy and expectations for the Chaps this season.
