Dunedin coach Max Smith said incoming freshman Kane Taylor has enrolled at the school and has worked out with the football team the past two weeks.

Taylor, the younger brother of former Countryside receiver Marrieo Taylor, is a youth-league legend who gives the Falcons a youthful effervescence as they try to build off their first winning season since 2008.

“This kid is pretty legit,” Smith said of Taylor. “He’ll start right away and should make an impact for us.”

Kane, who is zoned for Dunedin, already is 6-2, 225 pounds. He will be a tight end/linebacker and team with senior Brenton Allen to form a strong duo on both sides of the ball.

“Kane is a big boy, but he can run, too,” Smith said. “He ran the 40 in 4.8 seconds. We’ll probably play him at outside linebacker, and he’ll give us a lot of flexibility on offense. We can use him and Brenton in two tight end sets. He definitely gives us a boost.”
