The Heart Of Texas

That’s what Vince Young has become, according to this story in the Dallas Morning News. The writer (Chip Brown) talks about Young’s development as a leader.

Asked about his impressions of USC’s rout of the Sooners in the Orange Bowl last season, Young said, “I thought Jason White should have done a better job of leading as a quarterback. He hung his head, and from an Oklahoma perspective, I thought he gave his team a reason to give up a little bit.”

Young has learned another important lesson:

Faced with the same question posed to running back Cedric Benson last year that drew so much attention, Young was asked if he’d rather beat Oklahoma or win the Heisman Trophy. Young said, “I’m ready to do both.”

Good answer.
