Jahmon Taylor

Coppin State University
Sports Management


Jahmon Taylor has maintained a 3.64 Cumulative GPA while majoring in Sports Management. A two-time MEAC All-Academic selection, Taylor was the recipient of Coppin State’s highest athletic honor as a junior, the President’s Eagle Award, which goes to the student-athlete who most demonstrates excellence on the field, community and classroom. He has made the CSU Dean’s List all throughout college and recorded a 4.0 GPA in Fall 2017.


Taylor is a two-year team captain of the baseball team. He is a member of Coppin’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and a nominee for the Arthur Ashe Sport’s Scholar Award. The year before he arrived on campus, the Eagles won just three games, and Taylor has since led the team to its best season in program history as a junior in 2018.

Head Coach Sherman Reed had this to say about Taylor: “It has been an absolute pleasure for me to witness firsthand the growth and maturity of Jahmon Taylor these past four years. If you looked up the word ‘integrity’ in the Merriam Webster dictionary, I believe Jahmon’s face would pop up. He’s always the first to volunteer for a worthy cause, while always going above and beyond the call of duty. He’s a charismatic leader who demonstrates strong, humility, confidence and compassion in all things he involves himself. He has made a strong positive impact in the Coppin State Community, and he will surely be missed when he graduates this spring.”


A member of Coppin’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Taylor has been involved in and led numerous community service projects. In 2016, he helped organize the New Psalmist Baptist Church 5K and has also worked with the Ripken Foundation and James Moser Little League. He currently serves as an intern in the athletic department and helped organize the school’s first Education Day game on November 14 in which several area elementary schools were invited and offered free admission to Coppin’s women’s basketball home opener. It was the largest-attended women’s basketball game at Coppin State this season.


In 2018, Taylor led Coppin to its first MEAC Regular Season title in 22 years, helping the Eagles to a school-record 18 conference wins and 21 overall wins. Taylor received second-team All-MEAC recognition after leading the conference with 81 strikeouts in just 71 innings and a league-best 2.66 ERA. He had a 1.75 ERA in conference play and held batters to just a .191 batting average.
