Frederick Kimball Young[1] (born November 14, 1961 in Dallas, Texas) is a former professional American football player who played linebacker for seven seasons for the Seattle Seahawks and the Indianapolis Colts. He was selected to four Pro Bowls - two on the special teams and two as linebacker. He was renowned as a heavy hitter and was featured in the NFL film 'The NFL Crunch Course.'

Professional careerEdit

Young is perhaps most famous for a play known as "the interception that wasn't." In sudden death overtime of the January 1988 playoff game against the Houston Oilers, Oiler quarterback Warren Moon, passing from his 37 yard line, had his pass batted by Seattle defender Jeff Bryant. The ball was caught by Fredd Young as he "cupped" it under both arms. The officials ruled Young didn't catch it, a call the instant-replay officials upheld. That allowed the Oilers to continue on offense, and eventually win on a field goal.

Fredd Young wore the #50 jersey at Seattle.
