Temple defensive back Tavon Young earned American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors on Monday.

Young, who last season had one of the Owls’ three interceptions, picked off a pair last Sunday to help the Owls open the season at Vanderbilt with a 37-7 win over the Southeastern Conference team. The victory marked Temple’s first win over an SEC opponent since 1938.

Both of Young’s picks, which he returned for 35 yards, led to points.

Quarterback P.J. Walker also picked up an honorable mention nod. Walker completed 23 of 34 passes for 207 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 21 yards and a touchdown in the rout.
