Jarboe, Taylor to Be Inducted into Greater Baltimore HoF

Freshmen were not eligible to play at the varsity level at that time, however, Taylor garnered Third-Team All-America honors in 1962, second-team recognition in '63 and was a first-team selection in '64. His teams at that time either won or shared the USILA National Championship, including the 1964 squad that put together a flawless 10-0-0 mark that featured an 18-7 victory over Army.

Taylor served as a team captain for the '64 team and was also selected to play in the North-South Game that same year. The moniker Pete "The Shot' was derived from a description in the Baltimore Sun noting that he possessed the hardest shot in college lacrosse in 1963.

Upon graduation from the Academy in 1964, Taylor embarked on a distinguished career as a Navy pilot, achieving the rank of Captain. During his 27 years of service, he had 13 deployments, over 6,000 hours of flight time and 1223 carrier landings. Taylor was instrumental in starting the Jacksonville Lacrosse Club in the mid-70's, although his numerous deployments prevented him from significant playing and coaching opportunities.

Taylor is a member of the Naval Academy Athletic Hall of Fame and currently resides in Virginia Beach, Va.
