NEW ORLEANS -Isiah Young keeps pulling in major awards, this time being named South Region Men's Outdoor Track Athlete of the Year by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Monday.
Already crowned the SEC Men's Runner of the Year after claiming the SEC Commissioner's Trophy with the most points at the conference championships, Young hopes to add even more accomplishments to his résumé at this week's NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Ore.
A senior from Junction City, Kan., he won his second-straight SEC title at 200 meters in 20.20 and was the SEC runner-up at 100 meters in 10.14 in Columbia, Mo. He ran 9.99 - shattering his own school record - at the NCAA East prelims to qualify as the only collegian sub-10 this season, as well as qualifying at 200 meters.
Young currently ranks fourth in the world this year in the 100 and fifth in the 200.
The last Rebel to win a region athlete of the year award was Ricky Robertson last year (outdoor men's field athlete). Other Ole Miss athletes to claim such honors in recent years include Brittney Reese and John Yarbrough.
