Taylor Mays...a portrait in character

I don't care who you root for...it is hard not to like Taylor Mays!

Not only is he an unbelievably talented football player, but he's a great person. You can tell about his strong character and values by his decision to turn down big money to return for his senior season.

At today's Pacific 10 Conference media day, Mays demonstrated maturity beyond his years.

"It's tough," he said about putting off his big NFL pay day. "The money is right there and my friends are signing contracts. I had to make a mature decision in regard to my future."
