Vince Young is one of the greatest college football players to ever play the game. To Longhorn fans, he is, and will forever be, a hero, and his performance in the 2006 BCS National Championship game is legendary. But VY was a hero even before that game. In fact, his high school accomplishments were somewhat of folklore.
Everyone had to see the 6"5 dual-threat quarterback in Houston who could throw 60 yards off his back foot and run past any defender on the field. And when he did it again against USC in the Rose Bowl, his legend was complete: Vince Young had been blessed by the football Gods.
