Young Leads Undefeated Shaker Team

Danny Young Jr.-Shaker Heights
Averaging 25 points per game, Danny Young Jr. (5’8/combo guard/Shaker Heights/2022) has his 13-0 Shaker Heights Red Raiders squad poised to receive a #1 seed in their upcoming Greater Cleveland Conference (GCC) tournament.  Coach Kevin Foster’s team has enjoyed mostly blowout victories so far this season, with only 2 close games against Solon and Euclid Gold.  Foster attributes his team’s success to “an attacking style of defense” and the fact that his players “play together like a team.”

In addition to Young, who we’ve seen a number of times at our elite showcases, and who we currently have ranked in our top 7th grader list, the Red Raiders have a solid starting 5 of Jaden Brown (5’5/PG/Shaker Heights/2022), Adam Diaz (5’8/WF/Shaker Heights/2022), Lashawn Singelton (5’11/PF/Shaker Heights/2022) and Ari Green (5’4/SG/Shaker Heights/2022). 

When describing Young’s performance this season, which includes two 30-point games, Foster could not be more complimentary. “His [Young’s] game is very well rounded.  He leads the team in just about everything right now.  I don’t think there’s  anything he can’t do, both offensively and defensively,” said Foster.  Congratulation to coach Foster and his players!
