Young Enjoys First Visit
Jeremiah Young has already been invited to games by Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Boston College, Notre Dame, Stanford, USC, Washington, Syracuse, North Carolina, Connecticut and Purdue, but this weekend he took the time to watch Penn State in action against Iowa. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound ball carrier was named first-team All-State by the Associated Press as a sophomore and is looking to claim that honor again this season. "The visit went really well and I definitely enjoyed myself," Young said. "I went up with our fullback Jordan Hill and we had a lot of fun there. The coaches talked to us about the school and academic life on campus and then had someone take us on a tour of the museum which was really cool. They had a lot of trophies and all kinds of interesting things in there." "The game itself was also very exciting and the student section had me smiling when we came onto the field because they were cheering for all of us and yelling our names telling us to come to Penn State," Young explained. "During the game they were really loud, but I don't think they like the quarterback Anthony Morelli very much because people were all over him the whole time, booing him constantly." "I think one thing I definitely took away was how fast the college game is compared to high school and how big those players are. I was just surprised how big the difference was between the two levels." "Overall I'd give the visit an 8 or a 9, but it could have been a 10 if they had some cheeseburgers or steaks instead of pasta," Young jokingly stated. "The desserts were definitely on point though and I must have eaten a dozen of those cookies while I was there." So far this season Steelton-Highspire is off to a 4-2 record, having lost their last game with ten seconds left after going into halftime with a 21-0 win. Young had 156 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries in the affair.
