2nd Day of 'Canes-mas

Sean Taylor, famous for his ferocious hits, wipes out Pitt TE Darryl Weston during the Hurricanes 28-14 victory over the Panthers in 2003.

You might remember seeing this photo from the opposite view. Rick Stewart of Getty Images captured this hit at nearly the same moment from the other end zone. (That's me in the green jacket right underneath Weston).

In 2003, Taylor was named a consensus first-team All-American, the Big East Conference Defensive Player of the Year and a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award. He led the Big East Conference and ranked first nationally in interceptions with 10, tying the record for interceptions in a season with Bennie Blades. He finished first in total tackles with 77 (57 solos). He intercepted two passes during the Pitt game shown above. His three touchdown returns of interceptions is a Miami single-season record.
