After a big SEC Title win, University of Alabama quarterback Bryce Young has won the Heisman Trophy.

“First and foremost, I’d like to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” Young said. “Without him, I couldn’t be here. Through him, all things are possible.”

“For me, I’ve always been someone who’s been labeled as ‘not the prototype,'” he later said. “Being a black quarterback and ‘being undersized’ and not being that prototype, I’ve always been ruled out and kind of doubted. People a lot of times have told me that I wasn’t going to be able to make it, and for me, it’s always been about not really proving them wrong, but proving to myself what I can accomplish.”

Young managed to rack up 4,322 passing yards with 43 passing touchdowns as his first full year as a starter.

The Crimson Tide are currently ranked No.1 with Young taking the snaps at quarterback and they are set to play Cincinnati on December 31.

The sensational quarterback has much more work to do as a football player as he continues to witness his hard work paying off.
