The Washington Redskins welcome home Chase Young

The Washington Redskins have made many moves this offseason that have won the fan base back starting with a cleanup of the coaching staff. One of the great moves happens tonight in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft when the Redskins selected defensive end Chase Young (21) with the second overall pick of the draft. Young was one of the most anticipated draft picks since Robert Griffin III in the 2012 Draft. After the much-anticipated selection was announced many fans celebrated on Twitter with Redskins players welcoming home the Maryland native.

Young was born and raised in Maryland, where he would start off at St. Vincent Pallotti High School but soon transfer to DeMatha Catholic High School in his junior year. In his senior year of high school Young would help his team go undefeated to win the state championship. In 2016 Young was named All-metropolitan defensive football player of the year by the Washington Post.

After receiving over 40 college offers, Young finally settled on Ohio State University where he would record 98 combined tackles, 30.5 sacks, and nine forced fumbles. Outside of football Young majored in criminology inspired by his father who was a Sheriff Deputy with Arlington County Sheriff’s Office and seven uncles who all worked Law enforcement.

The Washington fanbase is glad to welcome Young back to his old stomping grounds and can’t wait to see what he has in store and hopes for many years of improvement. Although he was one of the most anticipated players of the draft, he will not be the only one. Tune in tomorrow at 7PM EST for rounds two and three of the 2020 NFL Draft.
