Sherman Plato Young -- 'Doc' Young -- graduated from Drew Theological Seminary in 1928 and was subsequently hired to teach Latin and Greek in the newly established Brothers College. As Drew’s baseball coach for 22 seasons, Doc Young’s overall record was 164-75, posting only five losing seasons. Young was also Drew's baseball coach; the Young Athletic Field was so named in his honor.
He earned a bachelor of divinity degree in 1927, a master of theology in 1929 and a doctorate of theology in 1930, all from Drew.
The Sherman Plato Young Award honors his memory.
