“He is a 200-pound kid who can play wide receiver, play slot, play outside, and as a running back, as good a runner as he is, his hand-eye coordination and running routes is what makes him different,” said Coatesville head coach Matthew Ortega.
Ortega added that for his Young’s senior year, the team has been asking more of him on the defensive side of the ball and also tried him as a cornerback.
“That’s what makes him different from other kids,” he said.
Young has shown his potential for football since he was a child. He has developed into one of the best players in the region over the years, thanks to his strong work ethic, attitude, and the strong support system he had growing up.
And Ortega emphasized that Young is the same person on and off the field.
“He was homecoming king, team captain, that speaks to how he carries himself in school, how he is viewed in school, and is just absolutely an all-around kid,” he said.
