Mr. DeCorey Young

I was born in Detroit, MI and raised in Nashville, TN. I graduated from Cumberland University (TN) where I obtained my bachelors degree in Recreation Administration. Post graduation I played professional basketball for five years in South America, Asia, and the Middle East. After retiring from professional basketball, I decided to pursue a career in teaching and coaching. I began as a 6th grade math tutor and eventually became certified in Middle/High School English. After teaching middle school English for 3 1/2 years, I am excited to continue my life as an educator at Willowridge High School where i will also serve as the Assistant Varsity Basketball Coach as well as the JV Head Coach.
