PERSONAL:   Exercise Science major……born 1/19/90…... parents are Darrell and Faye Young……career goal after college is to be a strength/conditioning coach and a college baseball coach……most memorable sports moment was hitting a 3-run ‘walk-off’ homerun his senior year of high school…..favorite thing about WSSU baseball is the team’s great work ethic……

 

COACH RITSCHE ON YOUNG:  “It took me two years to get Brent to commit to WSSU and I’m excited for him to finally be a Ram.  After taking a year off from college baseball, he had a solid fall for us offensively.  He has the ability to put up some very good power numbers and will hit in the middle of our lineup.  He will split time between 3B/1B as well as DH.  He was formerly a catcher at GTCC but has had knee problems that have forced him away from behind the plate.  However, he may catch if needed.  He has great work ethic and is an excellent student in the classroom.”
