DICKINSON, ND- Head Baseball Coach Jason Watson is pleased to announce the signing of Jake Young to join the Dickinson State University Baseball team.
Young is a native of Polson (MT) where he attended Polson High School. After High School, Jake attended Dawson CC (Glendive, MT) for two years. As a freshman, Young was named to the Mon-Dak All-Conference team as well as being named All-Region. As a sophomore, he was named Mon-Dak Player of the Year, All-Conference, All-Region, and All-American after batting .447 on the season. Young then transferred to NCAA D2 Coker College in South Carolina for his Junior year.
"I chose to come to Dickinson State because of their great facilities and campus as well as it is close to home," said Young.
Young plans to finish his degree in Exercise Science and enjoys hiking and working out in his down time. Young also wrestled and ran cross country in high school.
Jake is the son of Janet and David Young.
"I am very excited to have Jake join our program. I recruited him a year ago while he was at Dawson and I am glad he finally got him. He is a very good baseball player and will definitely help us in the infield as well as at the plate," said Coach Watson.
