Bryce Young, the quarterback for Alabama, is widely thought to be the No. one pick in the NFL Draft in 2023.
Young’s rise to the position of overall No. The first pick was made in Southern California. He attended Cathedral High School in the shadows of downtown Los Angeles as a freshman with senior Andrew Tovar. He transferred to Mater Dei High School after spending two years with the Phantoms. Young led the Monarchs to a second consecutive High School Football America national championship in his junior season (2018).
The video of Young from his first year at Cathedral can be found below. He split time with Tovar in 2016, as we mentioned.
With six interceptions, Young threw for 1,445 yards and 14 touchdowns. Tovar threw for 2,224 yards and 22 touchdowns against four interceptions.
Tovar’s career ended without much fanfare, despite the fact that Young will hear his name called in Las Vegas in April.
Tovar, who signed a scholarship agreement with the University of Arizona after throwing for more than 10,000 yards and 142 touchdowns during his time in high school, Tovar transferred to Black Hills State University in South Dakota after not playing for two years. Tovar’s career appears to have ended after he appeared in three games for the Yellow Jackets in 2019.
