Shock Talk: Project Manager by Day, Kicker by Night

Spokane Shock kicker Taylor Rowan joined SWX's Neil Stover in studio for another edition of Shock Talk powered by VPI Home Solutions on Wednesday, April 23. 

Rowan is in his fourth overall season kicking for the Shock and was part of the ArenaBowl XXIII championship team in 2010. After taking a somewhat forced hiatus in 2012 he rejoined the Shock during 2013 and kept his sport for this year. In college at Western Illinois Rowan was a two-time All-American and broke the FCS record for most consecutive extra point conversions.

The Shock's no. 6 also has a full-time day job and a family. Rowan is a Project Manager at Frencken America, an engineering firm in Liberty Lake, Wash. and is married with a child. His modus operandi (M.O.) isn't anything in particular, but he still dreams of kicking in the NFL one day. And with how accurate he is, it's hard to say that isn't a day that is far off. 

Enjoy the full interview with Rowan in the above video.
