Young, a two-time independent schools all-state pick who helped the Patriots to back-to-back state titles, finished his high school career with 116 catches for 1,687 yards and 22 touchdowns as a receiver and ran for a pair.


As a defensive back, he posted 66 career tackles and six interceptions, and averaged 23 yards on kick returns. He was recruited to play receiver for the Big Red, which employs a spread offense and is graduating three of its top receivers.


Young, who capped his senior campaign by earning a spot in the Oasis All-Star Shrine Bowl game, was ranked on of the top 20 players in the Mecklenburg-Lake Norman area. As a junior, he racked up five interceptions as a junior with one returned for a touchdown.


Young has also won a pair of state sprint champ on Davidson Dayís 4x100 and 4x200 meter relay squads. Academically Young is an Honors and AP student and was selected to the National Honor Society and was also a recipient of the Headmasterís Academic Achievement, Leadership, & Character Award for his academic achievements and leadership in the classroom, on the field and in the community.


Davidson offered Young a scholarship and William & Mary, San Diego, Columbia, Penn and Duke expressed interest.
