Steve Young is regarded as one of the greatest college and pro football players of all time. Across a pro career spanning more than 15 years, the left-handed quarterback earned numerous achievements and accolades, including a victory in Super Bowl XXIX (where he was named Most Valuable Player for his record SIX touchdown passes) and two NFL MVP awards, ultimately receiving football's highest honor in 2005: induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. His new memoir, QB: My Life Behind the Spiral, is a testament to perseverance in the face of adversity and doubt, in football and in life.
