Kobe Young Obituary, Burial, Funeral, Memorial Service, and all the funeral arrangement of the Towson Football running back.
The Towson Tigers football team is in grief following the death of running back Kobe Young over the weekend.
In a sport that has long prided itself for producing alpha males, Towson running back Kobe Young was a throwback to a different era.
“The biggest thing for me was, every time you would leave him, he would give you a handshake and say, ‘I love you,’” said defensive tackle, Vinnie Shaffer.
“He did that from Day One. He was like a brother. I loved him for that. In football, you kind of have that men-are-men mentality and that there are no emotions. Not with Kobe. Kobe always made sure you left the room smiling,” he added.
Rob Ambrose, Tigers coach, said he remembered Young’s optimism.
“The first thing that anybody is going to say is his smile,” he said. “He just lit up a room. He lit you up. It was really amazing. There are great smiles in the history of the world, but not every great smile affects somebody. His did — every day.”
