The Bulldogs' third pick in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft (selection 49 overall), Young was taken as key forward from South Australia but transitioned into a defensive role in his debut season at VU Whitten Oval.

Young played seven senior games after debuting in Round 17 against Carlton at the MCG after averaging 13 disposals and five marks over 14 games with Footscray in the VFL.

Just 17-years-old when drafted, the South Australian scraped into draft eligibility by just 11 days but showed major improvement this season.

The former basketballer boasts exceptional speed and agility for his height and has a good, reliable pair of hands, Young impressed scouts before the draft with his performance at the SA draft combine.
