John Taylor was honored Sept. 21 with the Dr. Jerome Holland Legacy Award for his accomplishments as a star wide receiver for the then-Delaware State College Hornet football team (1982-1985) as well as his subsequent NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers, in which he played in three Super Bowls – including catching the winning touchdown in the 1989 game – and being selected twice for the Pro Bowl team. Earlier this year, Taylor – already an inductee of the University’s Athletic Hall of Fame – was inducted into the Black College Football Hall of Fame. He is also an inductee in the Delaware Sports and Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference halls of fame.
Taylor also met that same day with the Hornet football team and gave them some words of encouragement. The next day he attended the President’s reception followed by the Howard University vs. Delaware State University Homecoming football game.
