He is also tied for the lead in assists with Sheldon with seven.
"We gave Steven some things to work on and he worked real hard on them," Foster said.
"He came in and showed us he wanted to be the man. He got to start up front. He got to see the speed of the game as a freshman. It showed him what he had to do. I'm really proud of him."
"Steven has done a tremendous job," Sheldon said. "He has been excellent and is always there when I need him to step up with me. Steven gives us a one-two punch. He's an amazing athlete and I can't wait to see him progress throughout his career."
Taylor is pleased he has become a bigger contributor.
"Eight goals is way better than one," Taylor said.
"You can't win games with one person. You have to have a team, and we have a very good team. I couldn't do it without Preston and the rest of my teammates."
While Taylor's rise has taken some of the pressure off Sheldon offensively, it has also allowed Sheldon to become a dual threat with six goals and seven assists.
Sheldon's all-around game has impressed Foster.
"Preston is playing the best forward he has ever played," Foster said. "He is totally unselfish with the ball. He is a team player. I'm very proud of his play this year. As long as we win, it doesn't matter to him if he scores two goals or a 100. I'm tickled to death for him."
