KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Raymore-Peculiar sophomore wide receiver Jaidyn Doss has won the 2020 Otis Taylor Award, which is given annually to the top high school football wide receiver or tight end in the Kansas City area.

Doss finished with 46 receptions for 973 yards, averaging more than 21 yards per catch, with eight touchdowns in 12 games for the Panthers.

He helped Ray-Pec win the Missouri Class 6 state championship with 190 yards rushing and three touchdowns on only 10 carries. Doss scored on runs of 43, 64 and 28 yards Nov. 28 in a 23-0 win against DeSmet in the title game.

He was selected to the All-Suburban Gold Conference First Team.

The Otis Taylor award is named in honor of former Chiefs wide receiver Otis Taylor. He played for the Chiefs from 1965 through 1975, helping Kansas City to a Super Bowl IV victory in the 1969 season.

With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to alter our daily lives, 41 Action News has partnered with the Thomas A. Simone Awards this year to honor the top high school football players in the Kansas City area, a tradition that began in 1983.
