Vince Young

UT Champ + NFL Alumni

Young played in the National Football League (NFL) for six seasons. Young was drafted by the Tennessee Titans with the third overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. He spent the first five seasons of his career with the Titans.

Young played college football for the University of Texas. As a junior, he won the Davey O'Brien Award, awarded annually to the best college quarterback in the nation. He finished second behind Reggie Bush in Heisman Trophy voting. After the Heisman voting, Young led his team to a BCS National Championship against the defending BCS national champion USC Trojans in the 2006 Rose Bowl. It was one of the most-anticipated, greatest games in the history of college football.[2] Texas retired Young's jersey on August 30, 2008 and has been an active community leader and entrepreneur ever since.
