PLAYERS: Vince Young
On Friday, former NFL quarterback Vince Young achieved his lifelong dream by graduating from the University of Texas with a degree in Youth and Community Studies. Young called it his greatest accomplishment ever, ranking it even higher than leading the Longhorns to a national championship in 2006.So, how did he celebrate this momentous occasion? By treating about 40 of his closest family and friends to a nice meal at his very own Vince Young Steakhouse in Austin, of course.Executive Chef and Owner Phillip Brown told For The Win that the former Longhorns quarterback and his guests came to the steakhouse a little before opening after the graduation ceremony. People ordered all different kinds of delicious things off the menu. Brown said Young’s favorite dish to order is the “Perfect Ten,” which is Akaushi grassfed beef from Yoakum, Texas. It costs $50.Yummy.For dessert, Young's crew devoured a delicious vanilla cake with strawberry filling and cream cheese icing, courtesy of the restaurant's top pastry chef on staff.Now, that's what I call a celebration.We are still waiting to see just how Young decides to celebrate on Saturday, though. The former All-American turns another year older, 30 to be exact.Via For the Win
