Jon Steven Young
October 11, 1961 in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
Steve Young is a philanthropist, football analyst and Hall of Fame quarterback from his days wearing No. 8 with the San Francisco 49ers. Young went from backing up legendary quarterback Joe Montana to being league MVP in 1992 and 1994. He tossed a record six touchdowns in Super Bowl XXIX and delivered the Niners' fifth championship. Though he only started for nine seasons, Young won six passing titles with his incredible efficiency, and his 96.8 career passer rating set a record. He was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005, becoming the first left-handed quarterback to receive the honor. He remained busy after retirement with humanitarian causes, primarily through his Forever Young Foundation established in 1993, which is active in humanitarian efforts throughout Africa and South America. Young has also served as spokesperson for the Best Shot Foundation, dedicated to protecting children in developing countries from preventable diseases. He and his wife Barbara have also been active supporters of gay rights. Young worked as a TV and radio contributor for ESPN, and in 2009 he became an analyst for "Monday Night Football" (ABC/ESPN, 1970- ). Young fought adversity and anonymity to become one of the best quarterbacks of all time. Since retiring from the sport, Young has gained as much respect for his charity work and frank football commentary as he did with his achievements on the field.
