Scott Young takes head coaching position at Independence
Young’s teaching position will not be available until next school year, but the coaching begins immediately. He said that he will commute until his family’s house sells here.
“I don’t do anything without including my family,” said Young. “Everyone is excited about new things and this is something new after 18 years. And that traffic is not something I want to tackle long-term, so moving is necessary.”
Young’s son, Bryant, will be going with his father to Independence. Bryant was a sophomore quarterback who saw some playing time last season.
Bryant will be hoping to secure a starting position, just like everyone else, Scott Young says.
“I believe in the platoon system, so there are 24 open positions down there, counting the kicker and punter,” said Young. “Even if you started last year, you’re going to have to win the job again. All of the starting positions are wide open at this point.”
