My name is Ryan Young, and I am a current Journalism and Mass Communications student at Iowa State University. I am from Iowa City, Iowa and graduated from City High School in 2013.
While at City High, I worked for the school's student newspaper, The Little Hawk. I was a sports reporter for one year, and I was sports editor my senior year. While on staff, I covered girls basketball, football, volleyball, girls golf, boys and girls tennis, baseball and softball. I also was one of the main sports photographers on staff. During my senior year, The Little Hawk won a National Pacemaker Award and the NSPCA Best In Show Award.
The summer after I graduated, I worked for The Daily Iowan - a student-run newspaper at the University of Iowa. I was a sports reporter for the summer semester and covered several topics, including Game Time League, the women's golf team, the men's basketball team, local prep baseball, prep soccer, and Iowa football.
After my summer job at The Daily Iowan, I went to work for The Iowa State Daily - a student-run newspaper at Iowa State University. I started out as a reporter for the men and women's cross-country teams, and now am a beat writer for the wrestling team.
