CUTHBERT, Ga. -- Andrew College Women's Soccer Head Coach Katie Brasher announced this week that Deirra Taylor has signed a letter of intent to play next year at Reinhardt University. Reinhardt is a private university, affiliated with the United Methodist Church. It is located in Waleska, GA, with an enrollment of 1,280. The Lady Eagles play in the Appalachian Athletic Conference (AAC) as a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Head Coach Andy Kaplan will begin his 17th year at Reinhardt next season, guiding them to five AAC titles in the last seven years.   

Taylor, a sophomore from Marietta, GA and Marietta High School has been a standout defender, both on the back line and midfield throughout her entire Tiger career. She earned Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association (GCAA) All-Region Second Team this past season. She made 29 starts in 30 appearances for Andrew, and was known for her toughness and speed, usually taking on players much bigger than herself, and more than holding her own.
