In her recent interview with Connecticut Sports Scene, Jenkins and her Mom Denise, discuss her soccer journey so far, her busy schedule and what inspires her to continue to work hard. Jenkins had a fantastic inaugural season with Hopkins, helping to steer the School into the New England Prep School Tournament.

NCE Technical Director John Curtis – ‘Taylor has continually shown the character traits that all top players possess. Her levels of determination and grit are second to none and her humility and open minded approach to everything she does, will hopefully continue to fuel her progress. We at NCE Soccer wish her the best of luck in her soccer journey and myself and the rest of the NCE Staff will continue to push her towards fulfilling her full potential. The sky is literally the limit for Taylor Jenkins.’
