All in all I am impressed with MD this season. As others have mentioned, they weren't supposed to do well...sure they lost the State Championship chance, but a CIF title is nothing to scoff at.
So far MD has won (4) CIF Championships (that I've kept up with) Boys Polo, Girls' Volleyball, Football, and Boys Basketball. Will be interesting to see if they can add a few more this year...if so this would likely be MD's best year ever in sports.

As described in the article Taylor enjoyed partying a little too much. He also had some of the same problems as another former MD athlete Todd Marinovich. The article is titled "Taylor King Back from the Brink." Google it if you care to read it. According to the article Taylor is much better off now and is currently playing basketball in South America.
