Congrats to Steve Young

Greenwich's very own Steve Young wore number 14 when he was a Cardinal. Of course, the world knows him for the number eight that he wore with BYU, the LA Express of the USFL, the Tampa Bay Bucs, and of course the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners recently announced that Young's jersey will be retired on October 5th - the 11th in teams history (and the 12th will most likely be Jerry Rice's number 80).

I've met Steve Young and had the chance to interview him. He's done well for himself on ESPN. A nice guy who probably deserved an even better NFL career than he had, crazy considering he made the Hall of Fame! Yet imagine if that guy Montana wasn't already in San Francisco when Young showed up...
