It was a soccer tournament to remember at the most magical place on earth for one Massac County boy. Nathan Taylor, son of Jess Taylor and Robyn Taylor, competed with the Southern Illinois Futbol Club (SIFC) in January at the ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World in Florida in the Disney 3V3 Soccer Championship coming in second place.
SIFC is a club travel soccer team based in Carbondale. Taylor has played with SIFC for two seasons.
The second place finish came with a Mickey Mouse inspired trophy after playing six games to qualify in the invitational division.
Before playing with the SIFC with Coach Wan Kamal, Taylor played with the Pumas Futbol Club in Paducah for four seasons. He began playing soccer when he was three years old with the Massac Youth Soccer League and played youth soccer for three years.
Taylor is now eight years old and a student at Unity Elementary School.
