Senior Standout: GFH's Taylor Kumm

Posted: Updated:

She's a small girl on the court with big time game. Great Falls point guard Taylor Kumm stands at about 5'2", but her contribution to the team is something that can't be measured.

"She does a lot of the little things, intangibles, grabbing loose balls, rebounding. She's not the biggest kid on the floor but just her overall tenacity has been a really good tone-setter," Bison head coach Gregg Dart says.

Taylor's game is deadliest from beyond the arch. She's ranked as one of the best 3-point shooters in the state, and she commands the team like a floor general.

"I can't explain to you how she sees the floor. It's ridiculous. She's just dribbling in and out of everybody. She just has it all done and I think that's what she does best," teammate Darbi Fought says.

Off the court, Taylor can be defined by the relationship she has with her sisters. The oldest one, Brittany, is the leading scorer for Rocky Mountain. The middle kid, Brandy, plays for MSU-Billings. Both her sisters are in the Magic City, but the distance only brought them closer together.

"Her and her sister are a bond you cannot break. Every single one of them has each other's back. Even if someone's wrong everyone has each other's back," Fought says.

With her sister's performing so well in college, there are expectations set for Taylor. But one way that she can surpass both Brittany and Brandy is to win a state title.

"That would just be a great way to end my basketball career. It would be one of the best moments of my life. You always plan to make it to the State tournament but I think we have a good chance," Taylor says.

Yes, a state title would be ginourmous. But to her sisters and teammates, she is already an amazing person who stands head and shoulders above everybody else.
