Brother Of Jason Taylor, Noah Taylor | Family Details!
Noah Taylor, a former college football player, became widely popular as the brother of NFL star Jason Taylor. To be precise, he is the youngest-half sibling of Jason.

Brotherhood & Collegiate Career | Jason Inspired Noah Taylor
Noah Taylor followed his 15-year senior brother Jason Taylor’s footsteps to football.
In an interview in 2014, Noah told NFL that he was proud of being the brother of the NFL player Jason but also wanted to make his own identity. He would talk with his big brother and often took guidance from him.
While in high school, Noah demonstrated impressive gameplay. But during his senior year, he had a hairline fracture in his ankle that sidelined him for the season.
As a result, many of the schools stopped recruiting him. In 2009, Youngstown State University offered him a scholarship.
After a year at Youngstown State, Noah Taylor transferred to Pennsylvania Western University California in 2010.
As a freshman, he played in nine games as a reserve defensive lineman and recorded five tackles. But in his sophomore year, in 2011, he tore his ACL, resulting in a medical redshirt that season.
Taylor played as a regular defensive lineman for the final two seasons with the Vulcans.
In 2012, appearing in all 11 games, he finished 21 tackles (seven solos), 5.0 TFL, and 2.5 sacks, including a career-high 2.5 TFL & 1.5 sacks with seven tackles against Gannon.
As a senior, Noah Taylor was selected to All-PSAC West Second Team. A starter in 10 out of 11 games, he recorded 60 tackles (19 solos) and 3.5 TFL.
What Is He Doing Now?
Even though the younger Taylor brother was a DL prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft, he didn’t make it.
Some notable picks in that draft were Jadeveon Clowney, Jake Matthews, Aaron Donald, Blake Bortles, and Sammy Watkins.
A graduate with Bachelor’s degree in Justice Studies (criminology), Noah currently works as an insurance underwriter/broker at Bass Underwriters (2016- Now).
