Young had to miss last year's Sun Bowl as as well as the Yellow Jackets' opener against Virginia Tech after selling his tickets to last year's Georgia game, a serious violation of NCAA rules.
Then, before the season even started, Young fractured his thumb in practice and was forced to play with a cast on his hand for the first few weeks. Now, just when he was getting in his groove, he suffered an upper-body injury against Miami last week that may keep him out of the Middle Tennessee State game on Saturday.
In an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Young said he's been trying to stay upbeat and make the most out of his situation:
"It's pretty much made me a stronger player, basically, so really it's a blessing," Young said. "It's kind of added a little fuel to my fire."
The 6'1", 200-pound defensive back has had 2 tackles and 1 interception so far this season.
