Lobos To Retire Taylor's Jersey

Longview's Bobby Taylor was a Pro-Bowler on the football field, but he's a role model in his community.

That is why Longview is set to honor Bobby Taylor by retiring his jersey.

Longview Athletic Director Pat Collins told KLTV 7 Sports, that Bobby's commitment to giving back to Longview is a big reason why no one will wear the number 24 for the Lobos again.

Bobby Taylor was drafted by the Eagles in 1995 where he spent most of his career before joining Seattle. He retired in 2005.

He is also the son of 1972 Olympic medalist Robert Taylor.

Bobby Taylor's jersey will be retired at the Lobos homecoming game against Mount Pleasant on October 10th. The retirement ceremony will be prior to kickoff, around 7 p.m. at Lobo Stadium.
