Trae Young, University of Oklahoma’s star point guard, is without a doubt one of the best players in college basketball. The 6-foot-2 All-American is also VERY afraid of birds, which is known as ornithophobia.

Last month, CBS Sports wrote about Young and his unexpected fear of flying animals:

“We were in New Zealand and would go to the beaches and all that stuff,” Young said. “You know how birds would be friendly to people? I hate birds. All you see is the ocean, the sand and birds flying over you. The birds trying to eat the crabs in the sand and they’re all next to you. I’ve seen a bird attack one of my friends at my high school in the parking lot. Yeah. It scared her. The bird was by her car, she tried to turn and get in her car but the bird was so scared it just attacked her.”

So today, when the Sooners traveled to Stillwater for the infamous Bedlam rivalry game, Young was greeted with what is likely his personal nightmare: an arena section full of birds.
