Biography:

Sports Speaker Steve Young will go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the NFL history thanks to his incredible work ethic and resilience on the field. Steve is a 3-time Super Bowl champion who spent the majority of his professional career with the San Francisco 49ers. He now works as an NFL analyst for ESPN, appearing on their featured football pre and post-game show, Monday Night Football.

Sports Speaker Steve Young gained much of his football skills from his father who led his college team in offensive production during the mid to late 1950s. Steve decided to follow in his footsteps and attend BYU as well. After finally earning the starting position at quarterback Steve did well enough to gain attention from professional scouts. He signed a contract to the former USFL which was eventually sold to the NFL. After being drafted by the Bucs in a developmental draft Steve did not have a great two seasons. He was traded to the 49ers to be a backup to Joe Montana. After Montana obtained a rough injury Steve finally had his chance to prove his worth to the team. After a few injuries to himself and backup Steve Bono he exceeded all expectations and was able to earn the starting position again. Steve has won three Superbowls, two NFL MVPs, and was selected to the pro-bowl seven times. Since retiring from the NFL in 1999 Steve has partaken in activities including sponsorship promotion, television, acting and philanthropy work.

Steve is endorsed by Gatorade, Visa, and All Sport. He has appeared in commercials for each with teammate Jerry Rice. He currently serves as a national advisor to ASCEND: A Humanitarian Alliance which is a non-profit organization that promotes education, health, and small forms of technology to countries in Africa and South America. Steve is also a giant Olympic fan. When he found out they were coming to the United States and more specifically his home town of Salt Lake City Utah, he was one of the first people to jump at the opportunity to volunteer.
