Disclaimer: As the 2020 football season still is “technically” scheduled to proceed as planned in Manhattan, with the recent delay of our season opener until Sept. 12 against Arkansas State, we will reset and continue this Countdown for just a little bit longer...

Goal No. 11: DON’T ACCEPT LOSING. If you do so one time, it will be easy to do so for the rest of your life.

Talor Chadwick Warner (b. July 8, 2002) is a big, physical offensive lineman from Gardner-Edgerton High School who plans on majoring in criminology and likely will redshirt in 2020.

Warner played under head coach Ryan Cornelsen at Gardner-Edgerton, who was named to the 247Sports Top 247 for the Class of 2020, checking in at No. 224. The organization also ranked him as the ninth-best offensive guard and second-best player in the state of Kansas.

Named a first-team all-state lineman as both a junior and senior by The Topeka Capital-Journal and The Wichita Eagle, Warner also was a first-team selection as a senior by the Kansas Football Coaches Association.

He was named a first-team All-Simone Team pick as one of the top prep players in the Kansas City area, as well as a 2018 first-team USA TODAY Sports ALL-USA Kansas performer.

Warner helped to lead the Blazers to an 8-2 record and a trip to the state playoffs in 2019, while they went 10-1 and advanced to the quarterfinals of the state playoffs in 2018.

He chose K-State over offers from Air Force, Akron, Ball State, Columbia, Eastern Illinois, Illinois State, North Dakota State, South Dakota State and Western Illinois, as well as interest from Iowa State. Warner’s chief recruiter was his new offensive line coach, Conor Riley.
