Jackson, Miss. (Provine HS)
Southern Miss football player Jeremy Young has been selected as the Southern Miss Student Athlete of the Week for his performance in the Homecoming win against Houston this weekend.
The 6-3 redshirt junior quarterback played 66 snaps, while grading 88 percent. He threw for 180 yards and went 17-of-26 passing, marking the third time he had reached that number this season. The Golden Eagles are 3-0 when Young throws for at least 180 yards.
Young's one-yard plunge with 10:47 left in the game was his second rushing TD of the season and third of his career. He finished with a total of 20 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
Young is currently recovering from a turf toe injury, but Head Coach Jeff Bower expects him to be back to 100% in time for the game against Virginia Tech this Saturday.
