My New Favorite Football Player - -Taco Wallace

How I Fell in Love with Taco: While playing Madden with my roommate, Chris Venditti, we discovered Taco on the Seattle Seahawks roster. I immediately moved him up the depth chart and Taco immediately began to produce. In my first game playing with Taco he was catching passes, returning kicks, and even had a pancake block and two tackles.

Pro: Has yet to have his first pro reception...has played in 3 games...Selected as the final pick of the Seahawks in the seventh round (224th overall). His selection marked the fourth time in five years that the Seahawks had selected a wide receiver in the draft.

College: Architecture major, as a senior played in 13 games and had 39 catches for 704 yards (18.1 avg). Had five touchdown grabs with a long of 58 yards. Played in only one game as a junior, seeing action as a reserve wide receiver versus Texas A&M (10/20) and caught two passes for 17 yards.

Junior College: Ranked among the top 50 junior college prospects in nation by SuperPrep magazine at Mt. San Antonio (Calif.) College. Honorable mention All-American and first team All-Mission Conference. Member of All-America 4x100 relay team that won California State JC title.

High School: First-team all-league player at Taft (Canoga Park, Calif.) High. Team MVP in 1998 and earned All-San Fernando Valley honors. Finished with 80 receptions in 10 games his senior year. Earned two letters in track and field and was a member of a 4x400 relay team that earned All-America status.

Positives: NAME IS TACO...Team-oriented player with explosiveness in and out of his routes Runs precise patterns and maintains his speed into his breaks Looks smooth when turning to adjust to the ball in flight Has a great feel for the sidelines and easily finds the open area in the zone Despite his slight frame, shows tenacity going for the ball in traffic Has the body control and flexibility to turn and adjust to the poorly thrown pass Aggressive upfield blocker who shows determined intent to stay with his assignment.
