Scott Lewis Young (born July 15, 1981) is a retired American football guard. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fifth round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He played college football at Brigham Young.
Young also played for the Cleveland Browns and Denver Broncos.
Young attended Hillcrest High School in Midvale, Utah and was a three-year letterman in football. He is the son of a police officer and an elementary school teacher. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer Young is an Eagle Scout with 64 merit badges.
Young was a two-year starter at Dixie State College (when it was still a junior college), and led Dixie with 15.5 sacks as a sophomore. He transferred to Brigham Young in 2002.
Projected to be a third-round selection, Young was listed as the No. 8 offensive guard prospect in the 2005 NFL Draft by Sports Illustrated. As of 2013, Young is one of only fifteen prospects to repeat more than 40 lifts at the 225-pound (102 kg) bench press at the NFL Scouting Combine since 1999. While noted for his upper body strength, his lack of a "dominant base" was criticized by NFL scouts.
Young announced his retirement from the NFL on Thursday, April 16, 2009, a month after signing with the Broncos.
