Steve Young produced some of the most memorable moments in HFL history. But his most impressive victories have been deeply personal ones that were won when no one was watching. His remarkably revealing memoir is the story of a Mormon boy with a 4.0 GPA, a photographic memory, and a severe case of separation anxiety.
As an eight-string quarterback at Brigham Young University, it was doubtful that he would ever see any playing time. But Young became an All-American, finished second in the Heisman voting, and was the top draft choice out of college. Then, after signing the largest contract in sports history, anxiety dearly drove him to walk away from football completely.
In short, Young’s quest in life was always about grit. Now he shares the experience of being inside his helmet while he faces down his toughest adversaries, both on and off field.
