Taitano (Washington, D.C.) had an impressive run as he broke off an 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown—only the third kickoff return for a touchdown in Southern Virginia football's ten-year history—during the third quarter on Saturday against fellow-USCAA opponent Ave Maria.
Taitano finished with a career-high 198 all-purpose yards, including 102 kickoff return yards, while adding a 30-yard score on the ground in the first quarter to give him two touchdowns on the day.
"Frank deserves the honor for his all-around performance on Saturday," said fourth-year Head Coach DeLane Fitzgerald. "We have dangerous kickoff returners in Frank and Dakota [Winsor] that give us another viable option to put points on the board when our kickoff return team executes the blocks and creates a formidable wedge for them to run through."
