Long Overdue: Steve Young to Appear on "The Press Box"

The guy who threw six touchdowns in Super Bowl XXIX also went to Greenwich High School.
It's with great pride that I can tell you that Steve Young, the MVP of Super Bowl XXIX, will be on "The Press Box" next Monday night, beginning at 7:00.  Steve has agreed to visit with us, via phone, for at least a half hour.

I last saw him about a decade ago when he was an honoree at the Greenwich Old Timer's Athletic Association Dinner.  I've interviewed him before and he is a good guy to talk to.

Young graduated from Greenwich High School before moving onto BYU, the LA Express, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and, finally, the San Francisco 49ers where he supplanted Joe Montana in one of the great quarterback debates.

Steve has been named to the first-ever class of the Greenwich High School Sports Hall of Fame.  Olympic hockey star Sue Merz and baseball player and official Zeke Bella are the other honorees.  They will officially be inducted at a banquet later in 2013.

We will have a fun and far-reaching interview with the NFL Hall of Famer.
