Meet X-Factor's Private QB Coach, Aaron Young

Young joins the X-Factor Academy family after spending one year at Illinois Wesleyan University. There he served as the Offensive Coordinator, Quarterback's Coach, and Recruiting Coordinator under Head Coach, Norm Eash. Prior to IWU, he began his coaching career at Indiana State in 2018, serving as the assistant quarterbacks coach. He was promoted to full-time quarterbacks coach as well as academic and community service liaison in 2019. In 2020, he moved to coaching running backs and specialists before adding the recruiting coordinator title to his responsibilities in 2022.

During his time with the Sycamores, Young coached two All-Missouri Valley Football Conference picks Justin Dinka (RB) and Ryan Boyle (QB). Boyle was also voted the league’s Newcomer of the Year in 2018 under the mentorship of Young. Under his guidance, ISU’s quarterbacks set the program record in single season completion percentage in back-to-back seasons with sophomore QB, Kurtis Wilderman, finishing 2nd in the FCS with a 69% completion rate. ISU's quarterbacks also finished the 2018 and 2019 seasons 2nd in FCS for fewest interceptions thrown.

A native of Sacramento, Calif., Young played his freshman season at ASA Junior College in Brooklyn, NY. The Avengers finished #3 in the country after beating College of Dupage in the Carrier Dome Bowl. Young was rated as a Top 5 JUCO quarterback which propelled him to earning a scholarship to the University of Wyoming. He appeared in 11 games for Wyoming, eventually backing up NFL Pro-Bowler Josh Allen. After earning a bachelor's degree in Psychology, Young then transferred to Indiana State, where he earned his masters degree in physical education with an emphasis in coaching. 

Young and his wife, Brooke, have one daughter Hilton.
