Tyrod Taylor at it again
By Heather Dinich
MIAMI -- Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck has gotten most of the attention this past week here at the Discover Orange Bowl, but anyone watching Virginia Tech quarterback Tyrod Taylor just saw why he was named the ACC's Player of the Year.
He simply amazes you. Just when you think the play is over, when there's no more room to run, no other choices to make, he find a way to make something happen.
How he stayed in bounds, how he stayed poised long enough to find David Wilson for an 11-yard touchdown pass can't be taught. There's no way offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring could have drawn up that play if he had tried.
It's that instinct that has separated him this season, and that kind of athleticism that could be a difference in this game.
