Friday's Photo: Raymond Taylor - Did he go to Borger High School in 1930?

"Raymond Taylor" is written on the back. 

This photo is one of many that belonged to my father's sisters. Dad and his siblings were Texans. Dad was born in Baylor County, Texas along with four siblings. His two oldest sisters were born in Erath County. 

Photo from
Borger High School
Yearbook - 1930
Dad (Whit Criswell Bryan) and his sisters - DeRay, Marie, and Willa Mae moved to Borger, Texas after the death of their father in 1929. 

I found an 18-year-old Raymond Taylor on the 1930 census of Borger as well as in the Borger High School 1930 yearbook. 

He was a senior in 1930, was the class treasurer, played football, and was the business manager of the yearbook. Could this be the same Raymond Taylor? He was close in age to Dad's sister, Willa Mae. Were they friends? Do you see a resemblance?
