Taylor Grout has done band since 4th grade up until he graduated from Elk Grove High School. He played tennis his last two years of high school on the varsity team on his school's team. Taylor started rowing spring semester of his freshman year of college and is currently rowing as a starboard. The reason he joined rowing is to get involved during college and once he joined, Taylor was pushed and had to push himself harder than he ever has had to do so to accomplish what he has which is a great feeling for him and is why he continues to row. He plans to continue to row all through the rest of his time at college and knows he will love every second of it.
