Biography

Savannah Young was born in Vernal, Utah but moved to Boise, Idaho when she was four years old. Young tried her fair share of sports throughout her life including multiple styles of dance, gymnastics, tae kwon do and many others. However the one sport she found she was good at, and fell in love with, was cheerleading. She has the bubbly, outgoing personality that's needed and she loves to perform in front of large audiences.

Young cheered for four years from eighth grade to 11th grade. During her senior year in high school she had to make a hard decision between Encore, the auditioned choir, or varsity cheerleading because of expenses and time commitment. She chose choir because she had been in choir for eight years and it had always been her dream to make it to Encore.

"As hard as the decision was, I still think to this day I made the right decision," Young said. 

However, one thing cheerleading taught her is how much she enjoys sports. This is when Young realized she wanted to work in sports. The three internships she has had the opportunity to work in were all sports-related and it reassured her that she wanted a career in sports and to persevere towards her goal of working in the NBA.
