One of the things Coach Taylor worked to teach his players at Prince of Peace Christian School was that there were only 2 things they could control - in sports and in life - their attitude and how hard they worked.
The 9474 Foundation was blessed to be able to provide this locker room sign to the Prince of Peace Christian School Athletic Department in memory of Coach Taylor and as a reminder to their athletes and coaches of this principle.
On Friday, May 10th, the POPCS Upper School students participated in a 1-mile "Color Run" on campus. This event represented their unity as a student body as they came together to celebrate the community that God has blessed them with. The POPCS Student Council dedicated the race in celebration of the lives and memories of Coach Phil Taylor and alumnus Andrew Kalinke (Class of 2017), both of whom they lost in 2018. Students received 9474 Foundation bracelets, and TCU purple was a prominent color. We were blessed by this thoughtful gesture from our POPCS Eagle Family.
Phil's friend, and author of "Underdog - True Stories of Overcoming Adversity", Scott Kujak hosted a book signing event on Thursday, May 16, at the TCU Bookstore in Fort Worth. Scott is generously donating portions of the proceeds from this event in support of the 9474 Foundation.
