MADISON TOWNSHIP — She’s no longer in high school, but that hasn’t prevented 2021 Madison graduate Taylor Huff from adding another impressive trophy to an already overstuffed high school trophy case.

Huff on Friday was selected the United Soccer Coaches 2020-21 High School Girls Scholar Player of the Year.

A freshman at the University of Tennessee, Huff capped an illustrious high school career by leading the Rams to the Division II state title last fall.

She was selected Ohio’s Ms. Soccer and the Buckeye State’s Gatorade Player of the Year. She was a two-time Ohio Scholastic Soccer Coaches Association Division II Player of the Year, a four-time United Soccer Coaches All-American and the USC’s 2020 National Player of the Year.

The 5-foot-8 midfielder graduated in the spring as the state’s career leader in assists (93). She scored 133 career goals, tied for 11th on the state’s all-time list. In her four seasons, the Rams were a combined 76-6-10 with three regional titles. Madison was state runner-up in 2019 before winning it all last fall.

In addition to her athletic accomplishments, Huff was one of Madison’s valedictorians this spring. She maintained a 4.0 grade point average, according to her Gatorade Ohio Player of the Year biography.

Huff recently completed her club season before reporting to Tennessee. She helped her Internationals Soccer Club U-18/19 team to a national runner-up finish in the Elite Clubs National League National Playoffs at the Premier Sports Campus in Lakewood Ranch, Fla.

Tennessee begins its season with an exhibition match against Alabama on Aug. 11. The Volunteers begin the regular season at home on Aug. 19 against Florida Golf Coast. Tennessee was 8-6-1 last year.
