If you look good, you feel good. And if you feel good, you play good.

Miami’s Malek Young accomplished all three on Saturday against Bethune-Cookman.

Young, a sophomore defensive back, registered his second career interception in the 18th-ranked Hurricanes’ 41-13 win. And when he came to the sideline, Young was greeted with a humongous gold chain with a “U” emblem.



A baller, indeed.

According to the Fox Sports South broadcast, that chain goes to whoever on the Miami defense causes a turnover. Pretty cool.


Young’s interception was one of two turnovers caused by the Hurricanes on the afternoon. There will be plenty more to come throughout the year — and hopefully more sideline shots of players rocking the hardware.
