The admirers are eager to know if Jackie Young has a boyfriend. Jackie has posted a photo on Instagram with a man who appears to be her boyfriend.
Jackie Young was born on September 16, 1997, in Princeton, Indiana.
Jackie is a professional basketball player who plays as a shooting guard for the Las Vegas Aces of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA).
The Las Vegas Aces drafted the professional shooting guard with the first overall pick in the 2019 WNBA draft.
Young graduated from Princeton High School and committed to play for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
During her collegiate career, she led her team to two NCAA finals and won one in 2018. In addition to that, Jackie was the gold medalist in women’s 3×3 basketball.
She also won a gold medal at a national professional WNBA championship in 2022 and was named the Most Improved Player of the Year.
Adding to the list of her achievements, Young won the Commissioner’s Cup in 2022.
Jackie Young Boyfriend
Fans were interested in the relationship status of shooting guard Jackie Young. However, the player has kept most of her personal life private.
The WNBA player has not revealed much about her love life.
Jackie has posted pictures of herself on the beach. One of the photos featured a man kissing her cheek. However, she hasn’t revealed any information regarding this man.
We can only assume that she might be in a relationship with this guy.
Reasons Behind Her Success
Besides her mother Linda Young, Jackie credits her uncles and aunts, with whom she shares a close-knit relationship, for her successful career.
She had a hard time growing up, living in an extended family’s shared housing.
“My mom, a single mother, made a lot of sacrifices for me and my siblings,” Young said.
The shooting guard always speaks highly of her mother and credits her for all her sacrifices.
Jackie Young Injury
Young sustained an injury in the fourth quarter of the Aces 97-90 loss to the Connecticut Sun.
She recorded season-high 26 points before leaving the court. Had she played a full game, the final results might have differed.
The shooting guard was diagnosed with a right ankle sprain, ruling her out two games.
The coach, Becky Hammon of Ace, said that the shooting guard did well and that she is an exceptional athlete. Hammon also believes that Young will never let herself get out of shape.
Jackie is the Aces’ crucial player, so missing a player like her for an extended period due to the injury would hamper the Aces’ performance.
However, her ankle injury did not strand her for too long. Upon her return, she was as productive as before.
On her return, Jackie said, “I’m just trying to get back into a rhythm,” she said. “It was my first time really playing five-on-five up and down. I’m happy to be back. I feel fine.”
