Airline’s Cameron Taylor, the Outstanding Pitcher on the 2016 All-District 1-5A team and a three-time first-team All-Parish selection, has decided to continue his baseball career at Northwestern State University.

As a sophomore, he was named the Overall MVP on the All-District 1-5A team.
Last season, Taylor was named the Outstanding Pitcher on the All-District team.
He went undefeated in the regular season and finished 8-1 with a 1.42 ERA. He struck out 64 in 59 innings.
Taylor helped Airline win three district championships and 72 games in the last three years. The Vikings went 30-6 last season and reached the quarterfinals of the state playoffs.
Taylor is the second Viking who has decided to continue his baseball career at NSU. Peyton Davis, Airline’s leading hitter, signed during the spring.
Woodfork was named the Outstanding Performer in the Class 5A boys meet in May at LSU, helping the Bucs finish third.
He won the 110-meter hurdles and the high jump and finished runner-up in the 300 hurdles.
Woodfork was also a first-team All-District 1-5A football selection last fall at receiver.
