About Taylor Renaud

Taylor Renaud played 3 seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, from 2013-2016. This came after 4 seasons with the Acadia Axemen in Halifax NS being named a 2 time All Canadian and 4 time AUS all star. Going into his draft year he was projected a first round draft pick but the first game of the season was tackled wrong breaking his leg in two places and tearing everything in his knee. He returned home to Winnipeg where he focused completely on healthy living with a heavy emphasis on nutrition to fuel the rigorous 6 hour / day rehab sessions 7 days a week. This protocol allowed him to come back the following season and play. “There is no doubt I would not have been able to come back had it not been for the dedicated healthy choices I made,” he adds.
