In the third installment of Hearst Connecticut’s three-part series on Steve Young, the Hall-of-Fame quarterback and Greenwich High School graduate shared his thoughts on the high school.
“Palo Alto High School touts a great program and sends many of their graduates to Stanford. But I don’t care; Greenwich High School is the best I have ever seen. You have free time; it holds you accountable and it really prepares you so well for college. I was a mature adult by the time I went off to BYU and it was 100 percent due to GHS. I’d put my high school education up against anyone’s.”
I got to know Steve’s mom, Sherry, when she was working at the high school. Wonderful family. It’s no surprise Steve grew into the champion he is, both on and off the field.
