ATLANTA – Georgia Tech football standout Cooper Taylor, who missed the final 11 games of the 2009 season after being diagnosed with
Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome, was approved for a medical hardship by the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Taylor, who played a significant role in the Yellow Jacket secondary as a true freshman in 2008 and started the first three games of Tech’s
ACC championship season in 2009, is now listed as a redshirt-sophomore and has three years of eligibility remaining.
“I am very happy and thankful to get back a year of eligibility,” Taylor said. “I appreciate all the work done by our medical staff to
get me back healthy again, and by our compliance staff for their work during the appeal process.”
