Chase Young may just be a rookie, but he's quickly emerged as one of the leaders of the Washington Football Team.
Ahead of the Burgundy and Gold's Week 11 matchup against the Bengals, Young was seen leading the team's pregame huddle, firing up his teammates in what is a must-win game for Washington if they hope to keep their NFC East title hopes alive.
Young's tremendous passion was on full display, as he got in the face of multiple teammates trying to hype them up.
This display of leadership from the No. 2 overall pick comes just one week after he made the biggest mistake of his brief NFL career. With just 12 seconds remaining in a tie game against Detroit last Sunday, Young was called for a roughing the passer penalty that ultimately set up a Lions game-winning field goal.
Young has faced a lot of criticism this week, but has owned up to his mistake and is determined to move past it. He now has that chance this Sunday, facing the only team that passed on him in the 2020 NFL Draft in the Cincinnati Bengals.
