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 schools 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, boys and girls soccer, 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, such as 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 am now in my second year with the Daily, and have covered several different events. Currently, I am a beat writer for both football and women's basketball.
