This led to low-academic performance, wasted athletic opportunities, and poor decision-making. His life took a positive turn after one tragic night helped him discover his purpose. Taurus entered college on academic probation with a 1.9 GPA. But graduated with a 3.5! He has since, earned his master’s degree, and is currently a doctoral student at Duke University. Today Taurus passionately shares his inspiring story with athletes, coaches, and organizations that want to live, work, and play fired up!
