Drew Taylor, SJO

Within the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board, there are a tremendous amount of influential athletic leaders whom we wish to recognize. These exceptional staff members contribute to a competitive, vibrant, safe, and fair athletic experience for our student-athletes.  


From St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Barrie, we recognize the outstanding contributions of Drew Taylor.  Drew has been mentoring student-athletes in our SMCDSB community for twenty years and was recently nominated by his colleagues who shared:


“Coach Taylor has been a pillar of the CSASC Basketball community for some time now.  His tireless efforts has earned him routine berths at the OFSAA Festivals in both Boys and Girls disciplines.  Coach Taylor has established himself as the heart and soul of Jags Basketball. This season he is directly involved in all four Jags programs, serving as Head Coach of JR Boys, JR Girls and SR Girls.  This fall, Coach Taylor lead the Lady Jags to their 4th consecutive GBSSA Championship which brought with it a 4th consecutive trip to OFSAA. Despite the departure of some incredibly talented athletes, Coach Taylor was able to lead the Jags to an amazing 4th place finish and brought home an Antique Bronze to the halls of St. Joe's.”


We would like to thank Drew for his remarkable athletic leadership and commitment to Catholic education!
