During last yearâ€™s Turkey Bowl game, Ricardo Young performed like a sophomore quarterback starting in his first big game, his lack of poise and gamesmanship contributing to H.D. Woodsonâ€™s 20-9 loss to Dunbar. Fast forward one year, and Young demonstrated the maturation and savvy that resulted in a 24-9 win over the Dunbar Crimson Tide in the 39th Annual Turkey Bowl. The 6â€™1â€ junior completed 10 of 17 passes for 141 yards while rushing for 31 yards and three touchdowns.
â€œLast year, I didnâ€™t have control of the offense. This season, I was under control and the coach allowed me to check off,â€ Young said.
