Landon Young could not hold on to win his second state title in shot put. The future Kentucky offensive tackle was upset by Scott County’s Bryan Hudson in the final.
The Scott County freshman has been compared to Young. The 6’4″ 260-pounder received an early offer from Mark Stoops last month. The hope is that he’ll follow in Young’s footsteps and develop into an elite talent. After today’s win, I’d say he’s off to a good start.
