BLOOMINGTON, Minn.--Adrian College senior linebacker Leslie Young (Mulberry [Fla.] High School) has been selected to the D3football.com National Team of the Week, presented by Scoutware, on Tuesday.
Young spearheaded a Bulldogs defense that allowed just 42 rushing yards by Alma in a 50-14 win on Saturday. He tied for the team lead with seven tackles, plus recorded a pass breakup and quarterback hurry. He had a 9-yard sack in the second quarter that forced Alma to punt from its own 16, eventually leading to a score and giving the Bulldogs their first lead at 20-14 with 9 minutes and 28 seconds to go in the first half.
Young has 15 total tackles on the season, including eight solo, as he was one of four student-athletes at his position singled out by the media outlet.
