Ohio State's Chase Young setting lofty personal goal for 2019
Ohio State’s team goal for the 2019 season is to claim another B1G title, reach the College Football Playoff and compete for a national championship. That expectation has been set by nearly every returning player wearing the scarlet and grey.
Individual goals vary, though. And defensive end Chase Young is setting his personal goal pretty high.
Young is shooting to break Ohio State’s single-season sack record set by Vernon Gholston in 2007. That season, Gholston registered 14 sacks. Josh Poloha of WFNY Cleveland captured the image of Young’s statement.
Chase Young’s goal for next season: Break the single-season sacks record for Ohio State.

The closest anyone has come to breaking Gholston’s record was Joey Bosa, who registered 13.5 sacks in 2014. That total sits at No. 2 in Buckeyes history.
Young was one of the top sack-getters in the B1G in 2018, totaling 9.5 sacks on the year. That total tied for second-best in the conference, behind only Iowa’s A.J. Epenesa (10.5).
Young will be regarded as one of the anchors on Ohio State’s defensive line for the 2019 season, especially with Nick Bosa and Dre’Mont Jones departing. Considering the success he’s had in his first two seasons, the defensive end is a great candidate to break Gholston’s record.
For his career, Young has tallied 13 total sacks in two years.
