WATCH: Taylor-made for Powerful 2019 season as star re-signs

BASKETBALL: Fresh from an off-court coup with Daniel Green at the assistant coaching helm, Gladstone Port City Capricorn Surge have received another boost.

This time it's on court.

Taylor Young has re-committed to the club for the 2019 QBL season on the back of a stellar 2018 campaign.

Young returns to the Surge after he averaged 23 points, six rebounds and five assists this season and was awarded player of the week honours as well as in the top-15 Most Valuable Player voting.

He is also a graduate of Warner Pacific University in the US where he was an NAIA All American selection in his senior year.

"My trust in coach Brady Walmsley is one of the main reasons I chose to re-sign with the Port City for next season," Young said.

"My coach demonstrated a level of faith and confidence in me which saw my game reach new heights during 2018 and I look forward to taking my game to another level under his guidance in 2019."

Walmsley said Young showed his loyalty and was offered more financially attractive offers elsewhere.
