February’s Athlete of the Month is Connor Taylor. The Bolt chose Connor because he has been a big part of the basketball team’s 14-7 season record. Besides playing basketball, Connor plays football and baseball. Connor’s favorite sport to play is baseball, and he also just committed to playing baseball for Danville Area Community College. He became interested in sports as early as a toddler. The Bolt asked, “Nike or Under Armour?” Connor’s response was, “Definitely Nike, with the exception of my basketball shoes.” His favorite Gatorade flavor is dark blue. Connor was also named Vermilion County Sportsmanship Award winner for football and was honored during the Vermilion County Basketball Tournament.
