‘Brothers’ Kerbyson, Young are Mr. Football


As Tennessee Volunteers Football commitments and TSSAA Mr. Football honorees, Devrin Young said he and Kyler Kerbyson “are brothers now.”

Young, a speedy, elusive All-state senior running back at Bearden High School with more than 5,000 yards career rushing and 42 all-purpose touchdowns in 2010, was named Class AAA Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Back of the Year during a ceremony in Murfrees-boro Monday, Nov. 30.

A 6-foot-5, 290-pound senior All-state offensive/defensive lineman at Knoxville Catholic, Kerbyson was named Class AAA Mr. Football Lineman of the Year.

“We actually became close after we committed to UT,” Young said about his relationship with Kerbyson. “I was pulling for him more than anybody. It's exciting to have your brother win Mr. Football.”

Young said the award “is just a huge blessing,” adding about his BHS teammates, “It reflects everything that everybody put into this football season.”


The 5-foot-8, 165-pound Young also credited his trainer, Devin Driscoll, and physical therapist, Mick Larabee.

Scott Meadows, KCHS head coach, said Kerbyson “is very well deserving” of Mr. Football. “He's a great young man, worked hard.

“Tennessee's getting a heck of a player. I'm very proud of him.”
