Member News: Congratulations, Al Young!

Award was presented to Al Young by Vin Farricielli, a past president of the Walter Camp Football Foundation

Longtime AAJA member and retired journalist AL YOUNG was selected as an Honorary Member to the Walter Camp Football Foundation during its 50th anniversary All-America awards weekend (Jan.12-14, 2017)  at Yale University in New Haven, Conn.

The WCFF perpetuates the name of the man recognized as “The Father of American Football” and oversees the annual selection of the oldest college football All-America team in the country that Camp — the first Yale football coach and team captain —  started in 1889.

In 2010, AAJA named Young to its inaugural honor roll as an “Asian American Pioneer in U.S. journalism.”  He is a past president of AAJA’s Washington, D.C. chapter and the namesake of the AAJA Sports Task Force Journalism Scholarship.
