At the early age of eight, Murray played running back and linebacker for the Toulon Tigers football team. His outstanding performance caught the attention of the varsity coaches at Onondaga. Murray proceeded to attend Onondaga Central High School where he played football and basketball. Pulling more than 1,000 points over his high school career on the basketball court, Murray set a record as the school’s all-time leading point’s scorer.

He was nicknamed “Tay Train” in high school and till day, the name remains a part of his career.


    Murray was offered scholarship to Boston College, Connecticut, Syracuse and Maryland. He finally attended the University of Central Florida, Orlando the city where he was born. His father, Paul Murray still resided at Titusville, a short distance from the school and this gave him the opportunity to spend some time with his son, sharing his success on the field.

After posting over 1,000 yards rushing, Murray was nominated to the All-Conference USA First Team. In 2010, he was named the MVP of the Liberty Bowl for his impressive performance against Georgia.
