Taylor Allen Hilgers (Aug. 26, 1993) is a walk-on wide receiver from Manhattan who redshirted in 2013. He is not likely to see the field in any capacity in 2014, serving instead as a member of the scout team.

Hilgers lettered two years under head coach Joe Schartz at Manhattan High School, where he helped the Indians to go 10-1 and earn league and district championships in both 2011 and 2012, including his senior year, when he earned second-team all-league honors.

He also lettered three years in baseball, earning second-team all-league honors, and four years in wrestling.

Hilgers was a four-time state qualifier in wrestling, including in his senior campaign, when he finished fifth individually and also helped the Indians to win a team state championship.
