For the third time in a row, Young will join legendary anglers and NBC Sports Outdoors’ The legends, Roland Martin, Jimmy Houston, and Bill Dance. In a press release, Young explained his motives behind his support.

“My dad fought cancer and won. I can’t think of any better way to give back to an organization that helps find cures for cancer than to spend the day sitting in a boat fishing with my old man.”
