Female Gamer of the Week: Taylor Bonnett of Poca High School
By Anna Davis, ATC, Administrator of Fitness Operations

Teays Physical Therapy Center, Inc. & The Putnam Herald are pleased to present this week’s Female Gamer of the Week award to Taylor Bonnett of Poca High School.
Daughter of Michelle and David Bonnett, Taylor Bonnett has been playing basketball for approximately 5 years. Taylor is a senior at Poca High School and carries a 3.84GPA. Her goals after high school are to attend college to study Athletic Training and then pursue a Physical Therapy degree.

On the court Taylor plays forward. “She is a team player, she has such heart and determination,” said Coach Kenny Sayre. In the past three games Taylor has had a total of 38 points and 37 rebounds. Her goals for the season are to return to the state tournament with her team. “It would be a great way to end my senior season,” said Taylor, “I couldn’t think of anything better.”

Most people would never know by the way that Taylor plays that she is coming off of a severe injury from last season. “I was afraid that I would never be able to play again,” said Taylor. “Teays Physical Therapy Center did a phenomenal job brining Taylor back,” said Coach Sayre. “She acts as though nothing ever happened, you would never know she had ever been injured.” After countless hours of physical therapy and hard work, Taylor is back on the court and ready for any opponent that comes her way.
When Taylor was asked who inspires her most she stated, “My coach Kenny Sayre, he inspires me to work hard at everything I do.” Outside of basketball, Taylor is also involved in Linkcrew, National Honor Society and Student council. Taylor also plays softball, which she would love to continue and play in college. “I know she will go far,” stated Coach Sayre. “She is going to be greatly missed on our team next year.”
