Heisman winner Bryce Young’s 7 best high school performances
The newly crowned Heisman winner is not new to hardware. Alabama quarterback Bryce Young rose to national prominence as a high school junior at Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.), where he helped lead the Monarchs to a national championship. And he was named USA TODAY’s Offensive Player of the Year as a senior.
As Young started calling his own plays at Mater Dei, he showed elite skill and a sense of awareness on the field beyond his years. He eluded the defensive line while keeping his eyes down the field, and could make passes through tight windows while on the move. Young easily ranked among the best dual-threat quarterbacks, but as anyone who watched Alabama this year can attest, he is a true passer.
The Bama QB ran away with the Heisman voting this year, and his success is unsurprising to those who saw his high school play. Here are seven of Young’s best performances while playing at Mater Dei.
