June 4, 2013
Young enters her first season on the Texas Tech staff with a wealth of both coaching and playing experience as a four-year letterwinner at Texas A&M where she earned both NSCAA All-Region and All-Big 12 honors during her decorated collegiate career. Young then went on to serve coaching roles at both Chaparral High School (Colorado) and on three separate staffs within the premier Real Colorado organization.
"We are thrilled about the addition of Bri Young to the Red Raider soccer program," head coach Tom Stone said. "Her experience at all levels as a player gives Bri a great platform as a coach to lead young women. Bri expects a high level of commitment and play every day and I am excited to see her impact on our program."
Young also brings U.S. National Team experience to the Red Raider program as she was a member of both the U-20 and U-23 squads.
"I'm excited for the opportunity to work at Texas Tech," Young said. "The team and coaching staff that Tom Stone has built is something every school should aspire to. They have had an amazing last few seasons, and I can't wait to be a part of it."
During her collegiate career, Young helped guide Texas A&M to a conference championship in 2010 and a Big 12 tournament championship in 2011. The talented center-back was named to the All-Central Region Team by two separate publications while also being named the 2008 Soccer Buzz Central Region Freshman of the Year.
Young was also named to the 2008 Big 12 All-Newcomer Team and the 2008 NSCAA/Adidas All-Central Region Team.
Young joins a Texas Tech program that advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 2012, and broke the school record for wins in a single season with 16.
