My Story

Josh Young is a 33 year-old professional basketball player. He currently plays in the German Bundesliga Basketball League (BBL). Born in Lawton, Oklahoma, to Rick and LaSonya Young; he is one of six children. Growing up, he played many sports. However, realizing that basketball was where he was most talented and had the most passion, he dedicated himself to hone his craft there. The talent and hard work paid off and afforded him a full-ride scholarship to Drake University. There he left with a B.S. in Business Management & Marketing, and the distinction of being the BB program’s All Time Leading Scorer. 
This led Young to the pros; where he has now spent 11 seasons playing abroad and competing in many countries throughout Europe. Young recently founded his first business. Competition of One is a brand that produces services, products, and experiences which encourage and support athletes to compete with the only competition that matters; the one within.
