Giants' Young watches game as scout, fan

August 04, 1996|By Gary Lambrecht | Gary Lambrecht,SUN STAFF

It's not as if George Young had the night off.

Young, the general manager of the New York Giants, is a Baltimore native who had a professional interest in last night's preseason opener, as he settled into the press box at Memorial Stadium. The Ravens travel to the Meadowlands to play the Giants on Saturday, and Young was on hand to scout.

Young -- who saw the first All-American Football Conference game played in Baltimore in 1947, the first NFL game played at Memorial Stadium in 1953 and the first Canadian Football League exhibition game two years ago -- also attended as a fan.

"I have to talk to you guys and agents all the time, but I also like to just watch a little football sometimes," said Young, who came to the game after visiting his mother in Timonium.

"The fans seem very enthusiastic. I'm very happy for the younger people who didn't have the experience of rooting for their team after the team left."
