LINDSBORG — Bethany College’s baseball team has added Kemondre Taylor to its roster for the upcoming season as the former Junction City outfielder recently inked his letter of intent.

Taylor also played football at Junction City, a Class 6A school. He used his speed to play wide receiver and defensive back.

He earned the school’s Elijah Carter-Saliabury Award.

"Kemondre Taylor's skill set plays right into what we want to do offensively," Bethany coach Andrew Bartman said. "We must have those rabbits at the top of the order spraying the ball around and being aggressive on the basepaths. We feel like Kemondre has the tools to really blossom in our program, especially once he spends some quality time in the weight room. I came away very impressed with "Key" as a young man on his visit, and I look forward to watching him mature."

He is the son of Tabithy and Timothy Taylor and plans to major in criminal justice.
