After just three seasons at Ohio State, Redskins' draft pick Chase Young walked away from the program as one of the sport's most dominant defensive ends in recent memory.
The pass rusher had a stellar junior season with the Buckeyes in 2019, finishing 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, Young 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.
The Big Ten Network is currently unveiling its 2010s All-Decade team, and it was no surprise to see that Young was one of the players named to the squad on Thursday.
However, what was a tad surprising, and quite impressive, was that the No. 2 overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft was the lone player to be unanimously voted to the team.
For an All-Decade team that includes NFL Pro Bowlers Saquon Barkley, Allen Robinson, Joey Bosa, and Taylor Lewan, that's quite the impressive feat for the ex-Ohio State pass rusher.
The awards just keep coming for Young, who was named Ohio State's Male Athlete of the Year in May. Redskins fans hope many more honors are coming in the future for the team's talented new pass rusher.
