The Lookout Page Designer Bayelee Hodge recently talked with men’s basketball player Tevin Taylor. The sophomore is studying business at Lansing Community College.

When did you start basketball?

 

“I started playing when I was 4.”

 

What made you start playing basketball?

 

“My dad really got me into the sport.”

 

What inspires you?

 

“The objective, not to fail in life, just to keep going and not let nothing set you back.”

 

What struggles do you face as a basketball player?

 

“Wanting to get better every day. Wanting to get up and get in the gym more. … Work out every day and just keeping the same intensity and the same adrenaline.”

 

How does being an athlete make you a better person?

 

“I feel like it allows me to connect with more people, communicate and get to know people. (I) work on my teamwork skills and my ability to understand different people you meet every day.”

 

How has being an athlete affected your life?


“It gives you something to do. I mean I like playing basketball.”

 

Why do you love basketball?

 

“There's so much good about the game. It gives you that feeling of being able to relax (to) enjoy yourself … giving you a different feeling than reality. When you step in between the lines it’s like you're not thinking about what's going on back home, what's going on with your family, personal problems or anything like that.”

 

What is the best part about playing basketball?

“The ability to compete and meet new people and being able to go in, day in and day out, and just play hard; doing something you love to do.” 

 

Do you have any embarrassing moments in your career?

 

“Someone made me fall once. I got broke but never been dunked on. … I’d rather take getting broke then getting dunked on, for sure.”

 

What are your future plans with basketball?

 

“To go to a four-year university and (then maybe) to the G-League or … go overseas.”
