ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) Aside from being 2,000 miles away from his home in Southern California, the most challenging part of Alabama freshman quarterback Bryce Young's transition to college was dealing with two straight weeks of rainy weather in Tuscaloosa this winter.
They don't get that in Pasadena, California. Otherwise, he's been too busy to be homesick.
"For me, at least, football kind of takes a lot of time," Young said Friday at the Maxwell Awards news conference at a New Jersey casino. Young was honored as the national high school offensive player of the year.
