LeBron gives Young a shoutout after upset win

LeBron James has never hesitated to hype up Washington pass rusher Chase Young on social media, and Monday night was no exception. 

After Young and the Washington defensive line played a major role in Washington's upset win over the undefeated Steelers, James fired off a tweet in support of the former Ohio State Buckeye. 

James, an Ohio native, has been an active supporter of the Ohio State football program for some time, so it's not a huge shock to see him supporting one of the best defensive players to ever play in a Buckeyes uniform.

And when you get a twitter shoutout from LeBron, you better make sure you hit him back. Of course, Young did. 

With the win, Washington improved to 5-7 and moved into a tie with the Giants atop the NFC East. New York holds the tiebreaker over them after sweeping the regular season series between the two teams, so there's more work to be done for Young and company if they want to make it to the postseason.
