Coach's Corner: Avery Young 

January, 24, 2012
As signing day approaches, DawgNation speaks to the coaches of several top remaining targets for Georgia for a closer look at what makes them special.

With the loss of Chester Brown (Hinesville, Ga./Bradwell Institute), need to add another offensive lineman in the 2012 class becomes even more apparent. Right now there are just 11 linemen on campus, so whomever the Bulldogs are able to add come signing day will have a great chance of being called into action this fall. It just so happens that one of the top targets, if not the top target, remaining for Georgia is offensive tackle Avery Young (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla./Palm Beach Gardens). Auburn, Florida, Georgia and now Miami are the likely finalists for the No. 8 offensive tackle and No. 61 overall prospect in the country.

Miller Safrit/ESPN.comThe usually mild-mannered Avery Young is a beast on the field, his coach says, as the OT helped carve a path for Palm Beach Gardens' offense to rack up thousands of yards this past season.
Young helped pave the way for West Virginia commitment Roshard Burney to rush for 2,000 yards and 19 touchdowns and Alex Clark to go for 978 yards. The Gators went 9-3 last fall, losing to state runner-up Miramar in the third round of the playoffs. Looking back over the past few years, head coach Chris Davis is grateful for the chance to have worked with Young.
