BoilerStation - Boiler Football - Purdue University Football News and Information.

Besides Herrmann and tight end Dave Young, who were consensus All-Americans in 1980, the '79 team featured six first-team All-Big Ten performers -- Young, offensive tackle Steve McKenzie, offensive guard Dale Schwan, defensive end Keena Turner, defensive tackle Calvin Clark and middle guard Ken Loushin.
...
Turner, Quinn and Young were voted to Purdue's 100-year team in 1987.
...
Young, who coached the Boilermakers to a 38-19-1 record in only five seasons, remembers the players and a particular ceremony more than any one particular game.
"I guess I think of the players and the camaraderie that they had," said Young, who was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1999 and is a member of the 2004 Purdue Athletic Hall of Fame.
"And I remember that we used to walk from the student union to the stadium on game day, and the players would chant, 'hey, hey, Boilers, here we come,' all the way to the stadium."
Under Young, the Boilermakers won three consecutive bowl games, defeating Georgia Tech 41-21 in the 1978 Peach Bowl, beating Tennessee in the Bluebonnet Bowl and edging Missouri 28-25 in the 1980 Liberty Bowl.
...
While the current Boilermakers under coach Joe Tiller feature a potent passing attack out of a spread offense, Young was ahead of his time in the late '70s, featuring the pass out of a shotgun formation.
...
Young, who will turn 70 in April, came to Purdue from Arizona.He stepped down after only five seasons coaching the Boilermakers, but after a year as an associate athletic director at Purdue, he became the coach at Army, where he ran the wishbone.He ended his career as an offensive line coach at Arizona and is now retired in Tucson.
"Coach Young was very, very detailed and very organized," Quinn said.
...
Young remembers Quinn being the emotional leader of the team.
...
"I'd arrive at our 8 a.m. meetings and see that Pete had already been up to the podium entertaining the team with his Elvis Presley impersonations," Young said.
Not surprisingly, young David ...

Not surprisingly, young David showed a definite aptitude for church music and gospel singing.Like other kids his age in those days, he had "heroes" in the various top quartets of the day.
...
In later years, David would work with those men and befriend them.
When David was still in high school, he formed a quartet in Lenoir City that was quite active at churches, chapel services, and civic clubs called the Kingsmen.If the name is familiar, it's because this group was a precursor to the Kingsmen of today based in Asheville, NC.David's Kingsmen appeared on Ted Mack's Amateur Hour TV show, and also did TV and personal appearances with Archie Campbell from the "Grandpappy Show" out of Knoxville.
...
L to R: Harold Bailey, Louis McKinney, Reese McKinney, Charles Collier, and David Young
...
Then, when David went to college at Mars Hill College near Asheville (where he graduated from in 1958), he played piano for the Kingsmen Quartet there.This group had begun as the McKinney Brothers, and among the people who had played piano for them prior to David were Eldridge Fox (who would acquire the group in subsequent years) and Charles Matthews, who wrote such songs as "The Devil And His Old Suitcase" and "Love Never Fails", two of their more popular songs in that period.
...
David gained valuable experience and met a number of other gospel singers while with the Kingsmen.
...
David stayed with the Sons of Song until 1959, his reputation growing steadily in the gospel music field.
During his stint with the Sons of Song, an important part of David's life entered the picture.While appearing with the Statesmen at the Atlanta City Auditorium, David noticed a young lady that Hovie Lister was playing a song for, and asked Hovie to introduce her to him.Characteristically, Hovie told David, "That's all you think about!You need to go to church with me tomorrow!"At that time, Hovie pastored Mt. Zion Church in Marietta, and the next day when Hovie and his wife Ethel took David to the church and sent him to a Sunday School class there, he was introduced to the young lady, who was named Elizabeth Colleen.From there, they were married five years later, and remain a loving and devoted couple to this day.Colleen was also a singer, so she would prove to be a most fortuitous choice as a life partner for David.
In 1959, David was offered a job playing piano for (and chauffering) gospel legend Wally Fowler.
...
Then, David joined Bill Crowe (the nephew of Blue Ridge Quartet manager Elmo Fagg) in Winston-Salem to put together a brand new quartet with Danny Allen and Jim Morris, to be called the Victors.
...
David joined a new quartet out of Atlanta called The Ambassadors.Besides David and Butler, the group had Jim Hill, Bob Robinson, and Bill Huie, a most talented ensemble.
...
Eventually, Butler and Robinson returned to the Sons of Song, and David and Cat Freeman joined a group that did backup work for Bill Lowery in Atlanta.
...
In the beginning, this group (called the Victors) had David, Cat, Rex Nelon, and Hovie Lister's brother Jack.
...
In 1960, Earl Terry left a group called the Marksmen, based in Dayton, OH. Fagg recommended David as a replacement on tenor vocals (David by this time had become a fine tenor as well as an accomplished pianist), and so David joined Danny Koker (the group's manager), Jim Hamill, and bass singer Don Taylor in the Marksmen.
...
L-R: Danny Koker, Bill Crowe, David Young
...
With the Foggy River Boys, David really began to come into his own as a musician, singer, and stage performer.
...
Their arrangements featured dual piano accompaniment by David and Danny Koker, and they were quite inventive.
...
At one concert in 1960, the group worked with the Couriers Quartet, an up-and-coming group out of Harrisburg, PA, and David was impressed by their demeanor and "classy" sound.He expressed interest in possibly becoming a member of the group, and Couriers' lead singer Neil Enloe likewise had a positive impression of David Young.Would David become a Courier?

...
David himself was drafted for the Army in 1961, and Koker was hired by the Weatherford Quartet in Akron, to work with Rex Humbard, so David left the Foggy River Boys to join the Prophets Quartet in Knoxville.

...
The Prophets hadn't yet joined the Gospel Singing Caravan when David joined them, but they were on the Mull's Singing Convention TV show.Typical of David's love for the church and pastors, he describes one of his highlights of his short stint with the Prophets as playing THEN JESUS CAME for the song's writer, Toronto pastor Oswald Smith.

...
Then, David entered the Army.He was stationed at Fort Knox, and served as a music instructor in a Band Training Unit of the 2nd United States Army.
...
But even though David was in the Army, he wasn't away from gospel singing.The Melody Boys Quartet was starting up again after Joe Roper had disbanded them a while back, and David played with them off and on throughout his Army time.
...
L-R: Duane Nicholson, Neil Enloe, Don Baldwin, Dave Kyllonen, and David Young at the piano.
...
Such traveling was typical of the Couriers in those days, but David loved being a Courier and his experience along with his Southern breeding helped get the Couriers over in the Southeast, where, at the time, they were members of the cast of the then-new "Gospel Singing Jubilee" TV show.David's onstage personality and bent for comedy as well as his spectacular piano playing and his occasional tenor solos helped bring the Couriers to their peak of popularity as a quartet.And David became one of the most beloved personalities in all of gospel music, while a Courier.His songwriting and arranging were also important parts of the Couriers' success in that period.
David was quite an accomplished songwriter, and that aspect of his talent peaked during his time with the Couriers.
...
In the years that David Young traveled with me in The Couriers, he and I became fast friends.Beyond his incredible talent, he is a devout family man with Godly integrity.
...
I'm getting some JPEG files ready to send you of Don and Dave, who you probably think are quiet and dignified with no appetite for hilarity.
...
These pictures will change your mind and if anything ever hits Dave K. as funny, he'll wait till he can't stand it anymore and then lay down and beat the floor with his hands.
...
To the people who enjoyed this article, I thank you so very much ... and to you David, and Colleen, I'm humbly grateful that this article touched your hearts as it did ... that is all the reward I need ... and all the recognition I deserve, if that.
...
I did several albums with David in the late 70"s.

If Francisco Aguilar and Dave Young get their way, police officers and firefighters will someday carry baseball-shaped, throwable cameras along with the rest of their equipment.
...
Aguilar and Young, who met as graduate students at MIT's Sloan School of Management, believe that their device will be easier to operate and cheaper than existing devices.
...
Young, who previously served in the Army in Iraq and Afghanistan, thinks Bounce Imaging's ball-sized device could be particularly useful for the military. It would be easier to lug around than some of the unwieldy equipment he had to carry while on duty, he says.
...
Young and Aguilar hope to incorporate different sensors into the device for different applications.
