Video: A few minutes with Fred Taylor 

By Matt Porter

YULEE — Former NFL, Florida and Glades Central running back Fred Taylor sat down with me for a few minutes at halftime of Friday’s Glades Day-Yulee game. Among topics of discussion:

– On watching his son, Kelvin; how Kelvin deals with pressure and what he needs to improve for college (hint: it’s a minor detail, but an interesting one).
– Remembrances of big games he played in at Glades Central — no ESPN games then, but he recalled every game being as big as Friday’s nationally televised tilt.
– Thoughts on being inducted into the Jaguars’ “Pride of the Jaguars” on Sunday. Taylor wants to use the moment connect with the City of Belle Glade.
– On his confidence level when he came out of high school and “minimizing distractions” for Kelvin.
