The Bulldogs' third pick in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft (selection 49 overall), Young is a key forward from South Australia with potential to burn.

The former basketballer boasts exceptional speed and agility for his height and has a good, reliable pair of hands. 

Just 17-years-old when drafted, Young impressed scouts with his performance at the SA draft combine.

Scraped into draft eligibility by just 11 days but showed major improvement this season and could develop into something special.
