Then he earned a bachelor’s degree from Lamar University. He pursued a successful career in education as a social studies teacher, curriculum writer, and a football and track field events coach. He was the Head Coach for his alma mater Clifton J. Ozen Magnet High School of Beaumont Independent School District. His success was never marginalized only in the classroom, but in lives of students, players, families and anyone he encountered.
Edward Taylor success as a coach stem from his educational philosophies and core values. First, he believed the more organized you are as a teacher the better coach you would be. In addition, he believed that anything supported by a fragile foundation will suffer; however, a powerful secure and indestructible foundation will last for a lifetime, eternity. One of the main core values he held as a teacher was building a foundation with students and players.
Outside of his profession, Edward had a love for singing, performing hilarious jokes, and residing as the “Pit-Master.” He would hype any pep rally to an extraordinary level that you couldn’t comprehend unless present. He was the life of the party and set a strong climate of love every place he inhabited. He will perpetually be in our hearts.
