Name: Taylor Cox
Job title: College Coach Coordinator
Hometown: Loveland, CO
Family: I was born in Wichita, KS and moved to Colorado when I was 5 years old so I consider Loveland my hometown. After college I moved to Denver for 10 years and recently moved to Greeley in January. I am 31 years old, a Cancer, love softball, the Kansas Jayhawks and enjoy good food and good company! In 2011 I met my fiance, Shawn, and we welcomed our son, Kellen, in November 2015. We got engaged at my 90's themed 30th birthday party last year and will be getting married in July of 2023. I was raised by my mom, Tamara and am the youngest of 3. I have one sister and one brother both older; Ashtin (36) and Chad (33). We are all super close and I consider them all my best friends! We are all big sports fans and enjoy spending time together watching and playing sports, board games, traveling and more.
College attended: Colorado State University Global, graduated 2018.
Sports background: I started playing competitive fastpitch at age of 7 for the Loveland Rage and went on to play for 12 years. I ended my fastpitch career playing for Comets-Gold (Sakamoto) before going off to Bradley University where I took on the role of starting shortstop. During my freshman year I broke the walk record and won the team’s offensive MVP. After two years and a few injuries, I decided to end my career and return home. I now play slowpitch softball competitively and get to share the field with my sister.
Hobbies: I spend most of my weekends hanging out with my family – I love spending time with my son and playing board games and watching movies together. Otherwise, most of my weekends are consumed with softball. During the offseason I like to be creative, paint, draw, craft, etc. I hope to start traveling and taking my son to the places I loved growing up.
Favorite trip: Earlier in 2022 we were able to take our son to Oahu, HI for a family vacation. We went to the Polynesian Cultural Center, North Shore, snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, ate some amazing food and made some amazing memories!
How did you become associated with Triple Crown?: I played for the Buckaroos when I was younger, and we used to come to the facility for hitting practice. My sister played for the TC Stars when she was 18 so I would come around for her games and use the facility as well. I also worked some events when I was younger and played some events growing up. I am currently a part of TC Pitchers.
What intrigues you the most about Triple Crown?: I love that you get to wake up every day and work in sports. Being a part of something that so many people are passionate about is exciting! From what I know and have learned TC is one big family and I am excited to get to be a part of it!
