Taylor Stafford Named All-American for Second Time

Taylor Stafford (sophomore, Duluth MN) was named a Third Team NJCAA Division 1 All-American this past week for the second straight year. Stafford, who recently committed to the University of Evansville (NCAA Division 1), will graduate from Eastern Arizona as one of the most decorated players in the program's history.

The two-time All-American's accolades include being named Region 1 and ACCAC Player of the Year this season, ACCAC Freshman of the Year last season, 1st Team All-Region and All-Conference in each of his two seasons as a Monster, and ACCAC Player of the Week three times over the past two seasons.

In his sophomore campaign Stafford was among the nation's leaders in many statistical categories; most notably he was the 4th leading scorer in the country as he poured in 25 points per contest. Stafford finished his career scoring over 1,300 points and helped the Monsters garner national recognition in the polls, make a post-season appearance, and win 39 games.

Congrats Taylor and Go Gila Monsters!
