Every well-known and talented sports icon had to start out somewhere. Lebron James did not foster his basketball abilities overnight, in the same way that Serena Williams did not master her swing after a few tennis practices. Famous American football players are no different, with quarterbacks like Tom Brady, Patrick Mahomes, and Aaron Rodgers shaking up the scene nowadays. However, each of these gridiron dynamites began their careers in a college program, once unknown amateurs to the greater world of professional football.
The same is true for Bryce Young, Alabama’s new starting quarterback, as his career in the sport is taking off as of late, surely prepping him for a prosperous NFL journey. Here we will discuss everything from the player’s early life to football career/stats, and of course, personal relationship history.
Bryce Young was born and raised in Pasadena, California although he spent most of his early years in Los Angeles. At his L.A.-based high school, Young made a name for himself in the football program, playing all four seasons. His senior year was perhaps the most fruitful in terms of yards passed, where he threw for a whopping 4,528 and completed 58 touchdowns. This resulted in the Los Angeles Times naming him Player of the Year in addition to USA Today awarding him with the high honor of High School Offensive Player of the Year.
When Young was finally up for college football recruitment, he was one of the best prospects around, and Alabama Crimson Tide’s long-term head coach Nick Saban took full notice. The 20-year-old rookie was given a full ride to the Tuscaloosa-based football program in 2020. Although he played back up to fellow quarterback Mac Jones throughout the season, he did appear in a total of nine games, passing for 156 yards. However, when the new season began this year, it was decided that Young would replace Jones as starting QB. So far, the college newbie is doing extremely well, currently leading Alabama’s offense and helping them become the number one team in the SEC West. In fact, Crimson Tide is even listed as the top contender to take the Conference according to SEC Conference Winner Betting Odds by expert pundits.
Young has been described as a ‘dual-threat’ quarterback, meaning that he has proven himself talented in both passing and running the ball. He isn’t a player that only stands behind the line flaunting his throwing mechanics, but rather is also effective in rushing towards the endzone when need be. His speed and athletic agility make this a possibility, with the sophomore committed to training and improvement on and off the field.
Personal Life and Dating History
As far as Bryce Young’s relationship status goes, we can assume that the football player is single because he has not posted anything on his social media accounts. He has also been quite private about his personal life since entering the football scene. With the new role he has stepped into as the franchise’s leading QB, he will have to put his full energy into the game.
Future NFL Predictions
Nick Saban noticed Young’s undeniable talent early on, comparable to other top players in both the college and professional league such as former Alabama QB A.J. McCarron (married to American model Katherine Webb) who led the team in passing yards from 2010-2013. Young is poised to be the next big thing in Alabama, with predictions already being made on which team will recruit him to the big leagues. Even though he is only a sophomore, some mock draft selections include Young landing in Atlanta with the Falcons, in Houston with the Texans, or in Pittsburg with the Steelers. Of course, this will all depend on how he continues to perform throughout the remainder of this season. Now he continues to prep himself and the entire offensive line for more winning streaks. Atlanta will host the most important game of the season this year, the 2022 SEC Championship game which will take place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Saturday, December 3rd.
