The band qualified in the preliminary competition to perform as an Area finalist later that evening. Only 10 of the 23 bands qualified as finalists.
“This was a first time achievement for the Prairiland Band,” band teacher Jon Weddle said. “The band finished 8th overall. Congratulations to the Prairiland Band on making history!”
Drum Majors for the band are Kristen Patterson and Allie Reynolds.
We are two weeks into the high school football season and the Prairiland Patriots are looking pretty good defensively. In the two games combined, the Pats have only give up a total of six points. One of the reasons for the defensive success is the play of Dakota Taylor.
Taylor, a 5’10” senior linebacker, has made his name known in the two games played. Taylor has 16 total tackles including seven for a loss of yardage. In the first game of the season against Chisum, he also had an interception, a fumble recovery and two quarterback sacks.
“He is a key to this defense,” Head Coach Alex Richters said of Taylor.
Taylor worked hard during the off-season to get ready for his senior year on the field.
Defensive Coach Rick Connot told eParisExtra “his work in the weight room this summer has really paid off.”
Additionally, Taylor plays on the offensive line.
“I’d rather play defense, though,” Taylor said. “I get to hit people.”
When he’s not playing football, you can find him hunting and fishing. He also tries to keep his grades up because of his aspirations to go to college after he graduates from Prairiland.
Not sure if he’ll have the chance to play ball at the next level or not, he is working to keep football in his future. Taylor says he hopes to be a head football coach someday.
Right now, though, it’s all about playing and being the best he can be.
“I care about this team. When I’m on the field, I go 100 percent,” he said. “I want to help people when their down out there, and I try to win every game.”
So far Taylor and his teammates are off to a good start. Follow us for Patriot football updates throughout the season.
