High School Football Star Gets His Own Smartphone App

College football recruiters have no excuse not to know the name Kelvin Taylor, thanks to a new smartphone app.

Developer Billy Carson of ZenForce Media created the Android app for the Glades Day School junior running back, which includes highlight videos, game photos, and the latest tweets from his Twitter account, @ImKelvinTaylor.

His father, former NFL running back Fred Taylor, approached Carson about creating the app for his son. Since its launch two weeks ago, the app has been downloaded 180 times. An app for the iPhone should be available in the near future.

With programs like Florida and Alabama showing interest in Kelvin, this app is just the icing on the cake in terms of landing at a top-notch football program. But for a high school football player that’s lost in the shuffle, this concept is a great idea to get noticed by schools across the country.
