Joe Long on Young: "He's definitely one of the best to come through here since I've been here. He's smart and he'll bring a lot of versatility and leadership to our club. He's just a threat every time he touches the ball."

Young on Young: "I'm just ready to start the season. It's time. I like basketball better, but in all honesty, football is my sport. My dad has helped me a lot and hopefully the season will be a promising one."
