Commentary by Andy Young

Andy Young is an English teacher at Kennebunk High School in Kennebunk, Maine. His background includes many years as a sportscaster all over the US, as well as time spent in the Peace Corps and as a substitute teacher and high school coach. As a sports writer he used to write editorials in his spare time; now that he is teaching he has no spare time, but still manages to turn out columns.

His articles have appeared in nearly a dozen different publications, at least three of which are not currently defunct. Recent essays have appeared in the Windham Eagle and the Portland Press-Herald.
