DeVonta Smith gives amazing Heisman Trophy tribute to Bryce Young

No one knew Nov. 21, 2020, would be the catalyst for greatness in Alabama football.

The Crimson Tide faced Kentucky at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Alabama had the most explosive offense in the nation under Steve Sarkisian, and Mac Jones was the triggerman at quarterback.

In the third quarter, a true freshman from California entered the game.

Bryce Young escaped pressure, rolled to his right, and hit DeVonta Smith for an 18-yard touchdown. It was Young’s first career scoring toss, and it led to Smith becoming the first wide receiver in Crimson Tide history to win the Heisman Memorial Trophy.
