Bryce Young Named To Manning Award Watchlist
Bryce Young continues to pile up prestigious accolades for his incredible weekly performances.
Through seven weeks, the California product has amassed over 2,000 passing yards and tossed 24 touchdowns, leading the Crimson Tide to a 6-1 record. Young already leads the nation in Heisman trophy odds, and has now been named to the Manning Award watchlist.
The Manning Award, judged by the Sugar Bowl committee, is awarded each season to the nation's top quarterback.
Most recently in 2020, Alabama's Mac jones took home the trophy after a memorable season which saw him lead Alabama to an undefeated record and a national championship, as well as finish with an impressive stat line.
So far in Young's first season as a starter he has shown off not only his incredible athleticism, a department Jones definitely lacked in, but his ability to truly lead the team.
In multiple crucial situations against the Crimson Tide's SEC foes this year, Young has come up huge for his team, finding the endzone seemingly at will.
Coming off of a massive performance against Mississippi State, where Young threw for nearly 350 yards and four touchdowns, Alabama moves on to face Tennessee.
The Volunteers seem to have a new life since the hiring of coach Josh Heupel, but will Bryce Young continue his dominance of opposing defenses?
