Intensity. Passion. Commitment.
These are a few of the qualities that push Redskins fullback Darrel Young to new heights on the football field. Indeed, these are things that every athlete needs in order to make it in pro sports, although every player draws it from a different place.
For Young, that source has always been in his brother David, a sergeant first class in the US Army. David has been deployed in the Middle East for much of Darrel’s career, but remains close with his brother, providing him with guidance and support, even from a world away.
In an effort to repay the favor, Darrel has teamed up with the Bills’ Drayton Florence and the Buccaneers’ James Lee as part of the “NFL Players Super Bowl Tour.” Since departing the United States on Feb. 1, the trio has visited troops stationed in Greenland, El Salvador and Honduras.
