Fresh off a 2011 class 4A state title and Taggart Krueger (6-2 185 Sr WR) of Skyline is looking to find the right fit at the next level. He was the leading receiver on a state championship squad that featured the nation’s #1 Junior quarterback in Max Browne (4034 yards, 45 Tds/7 Ints).
Krueger hauled in 1003 yards and 9 receiving Tds earning 1st team All Kingco honors on a team that spread the ball around everywhere. (Barney 697 Yds/10 Tds, Sinatro 544 yds/ 4 Tds, Greene 531 yds/7 Tds, Sblendorio 522 yds/8 Tds, Giese 429 yds/3 Tds, Gregory 371 yds/5 Tds).
Most of the receivers were primarily juniors which makes next season that much more exciting, but for Krueger the time is now. ” I would like to play D1 ball at some level so Im working hard and continuing to train”, Taggart says. He is currently running indoor track with some of the fastest athletes in Washington so his speed has taken priority this off season.
Krueger is long and rangy and plays like he is 6-4. Taylor Barton’s says, “I think Taggart is one of the 10 most under recruited kids in the Northwest at any position”. Taylor doesn’t just hand out that type of critique so Taggart’s upside is huge. He maintains a 3.6 accumlative GPA and was also invited to play in the All state game later in the year.
When referencing the storybook season that the Spartans just completed Krueger says ” I think the Eastlake game was the turning point, where we said enough was enough and really got things going”. Skyline finished 11-3 with two losses to Nationally ranked teams in Bellevue, and 6a State Champion Lake Oswego of Oregon. They did what a lot of people told them they couldn’t and won another state title.
More then anything Taggart is a quality kid with a bright future. We will continue to update everyone on his recruitment and wish him the best moving forward.
