Running For The Sunshine State
While attending an Offense Defense Football camp this summer, Joe Young, age 9, of Babylon, Long Island, grandson of longtime resident Noreen Young, was named an Offense Defense All-American and invited to participate in the 8th-annual Offense-Defense Bowl Week festivities taking place at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida.
A quarterback for Babylon Village, Young was selected for this honor from among thousands of young athletes from around the country.
The Offense-Defense Youth All-American Bowl is part of a week-long series of events including the televised, 8th-annual Offense Defense All-American Bowl, an All-Star football game showcasing 88 of the top high school seniors in the country. In previous years it has featured current NFL pros such as Cam Newton, Carlos Dunlap, and Dez Bryant among others before they were collegiate and later professional stars.
