Young's honor is just the latest award of many that the pass rusher has earned following his stellar junior season with the Buckeyes. The 21-year-old finished his final collegiate season with a nation-leading 16.5 sacks in just 12 games, earning Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and Bednarik Award (given to the country's best defensive player) honors.
Additionally, the pass rusher was named a Heisman Trophy finalist this past December, becoming just the ninth defensive player since 1982 to be named a finalist for the award.
Young becomes the second Buckeye-turned-Redskin to win Ohio State's Male Athlete of the Year award in as many years, as quarterback Dwayne Haskins earned the honor in 2018-19.
Congratulations to Young and his family on the outstanding achievement.
