Versatile Dareke Young Aiming to Make Successful Jump to NFL From Division II With Seahawks

RENTON, WA – Coming out of Middle Creek High School in North Carolina in 2017, Dareke Young wasn’t on the radar for many schools to play football at the next level and certainly didn’t part of a future NFL talent.

While his school lost just three games in his prep career, Young caught only 29 passes for 502 yards and five touchdowns, with his production impacted by a broken leg that cost him half of his senior season. Only 174 pounds and barely able to run under a 5.0 second 40-yard dash, he didn’t receive any Division I offers and only had a few opportunities to play collegiately at the time.
