TEN THOUSAND SPIRALS: Steve Young at BYU
Joyce Park stashed this in The Sporting Life
Beautiful story about Steve Young and how he met a spiritual crisis at BYU. I didn't realize that he was a total scrub when he got to college! He was EIGHTH on the depth chart behind Jim McMahon and 7 other guys, and the QB coach mocked him for being a lefty. He also had a religious obligation to fulfill. The details of how he resolved his struggles -- including with a lifelong "anxious side" -- are very absorbing and relevant.
This was eye opening. I never realized he struggled with anxiety.
Kudos to him for being so open about it.
