Dysart Taylor is pleased to announce that shareholder/director John F. Wilcox, Jr. was recently featured in Missouri State University Alumni Spotlight. The spotlight is part of a series that features the University’s athletic program, Bears Varsity Club.

In his Q&A, Wilcox describes his memories from his time on the Missouri State Bears football team, where he played center, offensive tackle and defensive tackle. He also discusses the transition from athletic competition to the professional world.

Wilcox states, “Prior to being a student-athlete at MSU, I graduated from Rockhurst High School in Kansas City. My high school and college experiences forced me to develop time management skills and a strong work ethic. These traits eased the transition to law school and the practice of law.”
