LaVance Taylor’s improbable NFL run has come to an end before it even started.

Taylor was a starting running back for Division-II Central Missouri. And although he racked up nearly 2,000 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns last season, like most Division-II players, he went undrafted.

While Taylor’s three-day run with the Chiefs may have come to an end, he took to Twitter to let his followers know that he remains upbeat, and is driven to find a permanent home in the NFL:
Don’t let nobody tell you that you can’t do something…if you want something bad enough you to believe and go get it period.

I still believe and I will continue to work for my dream to be the best
