Happy Birthday Bryce Young
Alabama quarterback and the reigning Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young turns 21 today.
Young joined the Crimson Tide in 2020, where he was a backup to future first-round draft pick Mac Jones, as Alabama went on to win the national championship for the first time since 2018.
The five-star phenom finished his freshman season with 156 yards, passing one touchdown, and a 59 percent completion percentage.
In his sophomore campaign, the AP College Football Player of the Year had a breakout year for the Crimson Tide, passing for 4,872 yards, 47 touchdowns and only seven interceptions.
Now the ESPY Award winner for Best Male College Athlete is focused and ready for the 2022 season with the hopes of winning a second national championship in three years as well as the NFL Draft shortly thereafter.
Recently, NFL Network analyst and host of Move the Sticks Podcast, Daniel Jeremiah compared Young to future Hall of Famer and Saints legend Drew Brees.
"Young is outstanding in three key areas: accuracy, decision-making and instincts. His ball placement is exceptional at all three levels and throws with anticipation and consistency places the ball on the upfield shoulder to maximize the run after catch," said Jeremiah.
