Naming occurs in recognition of the basketball star's contributions to the City of Norman preceding official opening of the Young Family Athletic Center
NORMAN, OKLA. - The City of Norman is set to honor one of its most well-known and accomplished Normanites with a street dedication ceremony. On November 5 at 3 p.m. a new street in front of the Young Family Athletic Center (YFAC) will be officially renamed Trae Young Drive in recognition of the basketball star's contributions to the City of Norman.
Trae Young, who grew up in Norman and attended Norman North High School, went on to become a standout player at the University of Oklahoma before being drafted into the NBA in 2018. He now plays for the Atlanta Hawks and has quickly become one of the league's most exciting and talented young players.
The street dedication ceremony is just one of many ways that Norman is showing its appreciation for Trae Young and his family. Through the Norman Forward quality of life initiative, the City of Norman is opening the YFAC – a state-of-the-art Multisport and Swimming Complex – in early 2024. The ceremony is open to the public and will take place at the new roundabout in front of the YFAC. All attendees are encouraged to park at the Embassy Suites located at 2501 Conference Drive, south of the YFAC. The Young Family Athletic Center will be open 30 minutes following the ceremony for an early preview to the public.
