Young is currently a Tight End at FAMU. The local star from Godby High School was one of the marquee signees in the class of 2019. As a freshman, he single-handedly changed the outlook of the tight ends. Young finished the year with 15 receptions, 191 yards and a touchdown. His lone trip to the end zone was the game-winning play for the Rattlers in a 42-38 victory at South Carolina State. He came through in the clutch with a 15-yard catch with 1:08 left on the clock. In 2021, he’s shown a new element to his game with his route-running ability and deceptive speed. All of his touchdowns have been for double figures in yardage. The distance of the other scoring plays was 15 (Fort Valley State), 49 (Alabama State) and 34 (South Carolina State). While at Godby, Young was one of the best athletes in the city. During Friday nights in the fall, he posted big numbers on a weekly basis.In the spring, he translated his strength to track & field. Young was the 2019 district and region champion in the shotput. He later earned First-Team All-Big Bend accolades in the event. His gifts on the football field caught the attention of several schools in Florida and other states. Young is also part of a huge contingency of players from the Big Bend at FAMU. He expresses a joyous feeling knowing he’s part of the cultural revitalization of the Rattlers on a local and national stage. Young’s athleticism makes it hard for linebackers to keep pace. His wide 6-foot, 3-inch 240-pound frame often towers over nickelbacks and safeties charged with guarding him. Youngs vast improvement plays a key role in the success of FAMU’s passing game.
