But when I woke up in the morning, my clothes were on the floor and the table was across the room. “It was on the wall. I was so embarrassed. I thought someone might be in my room. I looked around at the time and checked to see if the door was locked, and it was locked.”

Young said, “I’m not spreading ghost stories, but I was lying in bed after a night game a few years ago. My door was locked, but I heard footsteps thumping inside the room.”
Young continued, “I was awake at the time, as I had heard a lot about the Pfister Hotel. Then I heard footsteps again. So I said, ‘Play or sit or be comfortable. But don’t wake me up! OK?’ “After that, I didn’t hear anything that night. I let him know that he (the ghost) was just welcome, that he could be my friend, and that he would let me stay there as long as he didn’t wake me up.” Confessed.
