NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young on the importance of accountability


In this video, Hall of Fame quarterback, Steve Young, speaks on the importance of accountability. The former NFL star remembers his interceptions more than his touchdown throws. In a speech to Elon University students, Young describes the importance of taking responsibility for your mistakes.

Steve Young learned first-hand about communication, teamwork, and what can be achieved with hard work during his 15 seasons as a professional football quarterback. He gained national fame setting records throwing for the San Francisco 49ers. He is a studio analyst for ESPN and co-host of various ABC Super Bowl pre-game, half-time, and post-game shows.

During his career with San Francisco, he won three Super Bowl titles, two as a backup and one as a starter, including a record six touchdown performance in a 49-26 victory over the San Diego Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX that earned him the game's Most Valuable Player award. When Young retired after the 1999 season, his resume included being the highest-rated quarterback in NFL history, two league MVP Awards (1992 and 1994), and the renown of being the only signal caller in league annals to win four consecutive passing titles. A testament to Steve's success occurred when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August 2005. He has been seen recently co-hosting the Super Bowl pre-game, half-time, and post-game shows on ABC. He is also a popular studio analyst on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown TV series.
