Getting a read on Young

December 2005
Sporting News;12/23/2005, Vol. 229 Issue 51, p48
The article presents information on Texan quarterback Vince Young. The Longhorns, for the most part, are an I-formation team that wants to run the ball and execute play-action. Except, that is, when Young, their Superman quarterback, stands in the shotgun and runs the read option. There is no more dangerous and dynamic play from any team or any player because of all that the read option encompasses. The play allows Young to get to the edge and have to beat only an end or linebacker to get into the secondary, or it allows tailback Jamaal Charles or Ramonce Taylor a cutback run against overpursuing linemen and linebackers.
