Young walks it off, Gators sweep Samford

You’d be hard-pressed to find a college baseball player who had a better Sunday than Jacob Young.

The third-year sophomore outfielder went 4-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two stolen bases. Oh, and he hit the walk-off single in the No. 7 Gators’ 10-9 defeat of Samford to sweep the series.

“It’s a great feeling when you have all your teammates running after you,” Young said. “It’s a feeling you don’t get often, and, when you do get it, you want to take it in and kind of enjoy it. Having all your boys run after you with excitement is a great feeling.
