Young has been a three-sport athlete at Dexter, recently being named the Most Valuable Player in football, while also excelling at basketball and baseball. Young said it felt good to get the signing process out of the way so he can concentrate on his senior seasons in basketball and baseball. The 5'10, 168-pound speedster is currently recovering from a broken fibula in his leg, but is expected back on the basketball court somewhere around Christmas.
