Bryce Young has had the look.
His dad, Craig Young, knows it well. He’s witnessed it before. Several times, in fact, throughout the Alabama football quarterback’s life. And it’s back this offseason.
“I can see that look in his eyes where he’s been so motivated,” Craig said.
… The look appeared again in 2021 when Young strived to take advantage of the open Alabama quarterback spot. He ended up winning the Heisman Trophy.
“This,” Craig said, “looks very familiar to those times.”
Young is fresh off a season that ended with a 33-18 loss to Georgia in the College Football Playoff championship. It was only Young’s fifth loss over his past four seasons of football.
Now, the quarterback who seldom loses has the task of responding to his greatest loss yet.
“He’s hungry,” said Taylor Kelly, a long-time QB trainer for Young. “It’s the hungriest that I’ve seen him.”
So, you’re saying he wasn’t hungry to win a national title? Maybe he just lost his appetite after Metchie and Williams went down.
