Steve Young Leads Olympics Volunteers

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Former 49ers quarterback Steve Young fell in love with the Olympics during a trip to the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. With roots in Utah stretching all the way back to his great-great-great grandfather Brigham Young, Steve Young was a natural to become involved with the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

The former quarterback has been asked to head an army of 30,000 volunteers who will assist those attending the event. Young will also emcee the presentation of gold, silver and bronze medals each night during ceremonies in downtown Salt Lake City.

The trip to Lillehammer was the greatest cultural experience of his life, Young said. "Salt Lake City is going to be the second-greatest cultural experience of my life."

Since retiring from football, Young has married, become a father, dabbled in football commentary, and co-founded an Internet startup company.
