Mattell's new Ken modeled after former Iowa State football player

ESPN reports that former Iowa State player, Kurtis Taylor (#47) will become the next face of the Ken doll and that Mattell is reportedly readying a modeling contract for Taylor, a 6-foot-3, 245-pound native of Fort Dodge, Iowa.
     While at Iowa State, Taylor won the team's comeback player of the year award after the 2007 season when he finished second in the Big 12 with 6.5 sacks a season after missing all of 2006 with a knee injury suffered during spring drills.
     He made 41 tackles that season, including eight tackles for loss.
     In 2008, Taylor was an honorable mention All-Big 12 selection as a senior. He finished his career with 85 tackles, 11.5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss.
KCCI in Des Moines interviewed Taylor.
