Vale Galen Young

The NBL is saddened to hear of the passing of former
@PerthWildcats and Townsville Crocodiles player Galen Young.
Young played 48 games in the NBL, winning a championship with the Wildcats in 2010.

Our thoughts are with those who were close to him.

The circumstances of Young's death are unusual. According to a tweet Saturday night from the Memphis police department, a vehicle crashed into a house in Memphis on Horn Lake Road. The crash killed Young, who was inside the house at the time. The driver of the vehicle, who was not named, was issued a citation by the officers who responded at 2:42 a.m. The investigation is ongoing.
Freak accident. He was on a computer in the front room, while visiting his mother.

That's terrible, I remember when he played for the Crocs and fans were calling for him to be cut his wife started posting on Oz Hoops to defend him.

Really sad, RIP.

Young was the best at giving it to Homicide after leaving the Crocs by always calling Corey out on his bullshit because he knew him so well at Townsville, RIP.

His wife's outburst was entertaining but doesn't hold a candle to Matt Shanahan's mum's meltdown over two separate forums.

If anyone hasn't seen it yet I would suggest to watch the start of the current (last Tuesday's) episode of NBL Overtime as Homicide gave a really heart felt tribute to Galen and what he meant to him saying he looked up to him like a big brother and how sad he feels for his sons.
