Meet Maxwell ‘Bunchie’ Young, SI’s ‘Sportskid of the Year’

This may not be the last time we hear the name Maxwell “Bunchie” Young, and we couldn’t be happier for the 10-year-old!

ESSENCE reports that Young is the new face of Sports Illustrated Kids. And that’s not all.

He also snagged the “SportsKid of the Year” award for his contributions to football and track. Did we mention that he has already landed a full ride to the University of Illinois?!
