Player Bio

Background

Young was selected by St Kilda with pick No. 67 in the 2018 National Draft.

Recruited from North Adelaide, the 23-year-old quickly earned a reputation for being one of the most relentless and aggressive players in the SANFL, with his hunt on the football rivalled only by a few.

Renowned for his defensive pressure, goal-sense and ability to pinch-hit through the midfield, Young is set to become another dangerous asset in the Saints’ arsenal.

Alongside fellow mature-age recruits in Matt Parker and Nicholas Hind, Young will be focused on making an instant impression and driving the red, white and black on to success in 2019.
