“Everything, pretty much. The kid [Young] is so talented and he has such a calm about him,” commented Barker. “The one thing that stands out the most is how he can move around the pocket. He keeps his eyes down the field, he can make the throw and he can make it off-balance. He can make it accurately, he can put touch on it if he needs to … change the speed of the ball, different arm angles. But I think the biggest thing is that he’s a great guy. The team, they love him.”
