UCLA LB Kenny Young named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week

The hiring of coach Chip Kelly to replace Jim Mora has drawn all of the attention being paid toward UCLA football, but before that actually happened the Bruins managed to knock off California last Friday to become bowl-eligible.

And that 30-27 victory wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of senior linebacker Kenny Young in his final game at the Rose Bowl.

Young’s career-high 15 tackles included 12 of the solo variety and gave him 101 total takedowns for the season and 295 for his career. He was also credited with 0.5 tackles for loss, giving him 7.5 for the season.
