A couple months ago, 2009 North Kitsap grad Taylor Chisholm was all ready to take his football talents to the University of British Columbia.
So what’s Chisholm doing enrolled at Central Washington, ready to try to walk on for the Wildcats?
I talked with Taylor’s father, NK boys basketball Tony Chisholm, tonight and got the story.
According to Tony Chisholm, UBC didn’t have a room for Taylor when he went to camp earlier this month, and the school basically presented Taylor with two options: go join a fraternity, or rent a house/apartment off-campus with other players.
Tony Chisholm said his son, who saw some time with the first team during camp, had no interest in joining a frat, and Taylor’s family wasn’t about to folk over money for an apartment considering they’d already put a deposit down to cover Taylor’s room and board at the school.
So instead of dealing with the headache in a foreign country, Taylor Chisholm decided to come home, enroll at CWU and give it his best shot with the Wildcats. Former NK tight end Evan Tidball is already on the roster, while former NK quarterback Kevin Stringer, like Chisholm, will attempt to walk on.
“Things happen for a reason,” Tony Chisholm said.
