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.

Adrian returns to the gridiron on Saturday at Albion College, with a 1 p.m. scheduled kickoff. Can't make the game? No problem because Albion Athletics will have Live stats | Video, and the game can be heard locally on WLEN radio via audiocast at http://bitstreammedia.net/sports.asp.
