Taylor Smith - Class of 2017 | Coomera Anglican College

Taylor Smith - Class of 2017

Introducing one of our Sporting Greats: Taylor Smith. 

In 2019, Taylor Smith was the SUNS’ final priority signing before the AFLW draft. Still a relative newcomer to the game, Smith has only been playing football for two years after first giving the sport a go in high school. Since then, Smith has quickly shown her aptitude to football, joining the Gold Coast SUNS Academy and earning selection for the Queensland Under 18 team. A naturally gifted athlete, Smith has proven her worth as a key forward, impressing with her overhead marking skills and composure from set shots. She represented the SUNS in both seasons of the Winter Series in the forward line.

“ I am currently studying a Bachelor of Education at Griffith university. I am also playing AFL for bond University in the AFLW.  I played for the QLD State team at the 18s Nationals AFLW championships and for the Gold Coast Suns in the QW winter series and was  nominated to attend the 2019 NAB AFLW National Combine in Melbourne as 1 of 45 invited from all over Australia. 

I am an athletics coach at Coomera Anglican College and for work I do a bit of tutoring and work for AFLQ.

There were so many amazing things that I enjoyed about Coomera Anglican College.

Having been there from Prep to Year 12, I was lucky enough to develop some amazing life long friendships and some really great relationships with the amazing teachers.

The College provided me with so many opportunities through academics and sports. I also loved being part of the College musicals and that’s definitely something I miss!”
