Young was born on July 25, 2001, in Philadelphia. He later moved to Pasadena, California, where he lived for most of his adolescence.
Young attended Cathedral High School in Los Angeles and transferred to Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California, for his last two years of high school football.
As a senior, he was the Los Angeles Times Player of the Year and California’s Gatorade Football Player of the Year after throwing for 4,528 yards and 58 touchdowns.
Bryce young injury
Young originally landed awkwardly on his right arm and shoulder on a carry as he attempted to throw the ball away.
The quarterback remained on the field for the next play, but was visibly grimacing in pain as he threw the ball and went directly to the injury tent.
Young did not come out of the injury tent in time for Alabama’s next offensive series, and quarterback Jalen Milroe entered in his place.
Milroe scored a TD on the ensuing drive for the Tide’s 21-0 lead.
Alabama trainers went in and out of the injury tent to look at Young’s shoulder and reports indicate that the player’s parent also visited him.
Young emerged from the tent a few minutes later and ran towards the Crimson Tide locker room, but still clearly favored the right shoulder.
Why leave Alabama
Alabama football quarterback Bryce Young left with an apparent right shoulder injury in the second quarter of Saturday’s game at Arkansas.
Young threw his helmet on the ground while favoring his right arm after throwing a third-down pass. Young was not hit on that play, but was favoring his right shoulder after a sack on the final play of Alabama’s previous offensive drive. He lunged, trying to throw the ball away on the play, leaving his right arm exposed as he fell to the ground.
Young spent several minutes inside the injury tent on the Alabama sideline before jogging to the locker room with Alabama’s medical staff, still favoring the same arm.
“He’s got a shoulder injury. I don’t know the extent of it, I don’t know how bad it is,” Alabama coach Nick Saban told CBS at halftime. “They worked on him inside, so I’ll probably see when we go in.”
Young came back out to the field to start the second half and took snaps and handoffs before the start of the third quarter. CBS reported Young was questionable to return.
Jalen Milroe came into the game to play quarterback on Alabama’s next offensive drive and led Alabama to two touchdowns on two drives. The Tide led Arkansas 28-7 at the half and would win 49-26.
Antonio Brown shoulder
Alabama fans are holding their breath for junior quarterback, Bryce Young.
He suffered a shoulder injury in the second quarter against Arkansas and went to the locker room. Nick Saban said he does not know the extent of the injury, but he knows Young hurt his shoulder.
The reigning Heisman winner threw his helmet on the ground in frustration after a pass and went into the medical tent. He had 173 passing yards and two touchdowns before the injury.
AJ McCarron, a former three-time BCS National Champion for the Crimson Tide, weighed in on Young’s injury via Twitter.
The Crimson Tide legend believes the injury is not season-ending. McCarron said it is an AC Joint and Labrum issue, but he knows Alabama has the best medical staff in college football.
Jalen Milroe finished the first half as the Crimson Tide’s quarterback and looks to finish the game. Alabama has a 28-7 lead at halftime, but fans want to be sure Young is okay moving forward.
