Alabama football could see more success next year

When you win the Heisman Trophy as an underclassman, people automatically look ahead to the next year. Only one player has won the Heisman Trophy twice, and people want to see if it will ever happen again. With Bryce Young winning the Heisman this year, many wonder if the Alabama football quarterback will win it again.

For starters, Young is coming back next year after leading Alabama football to the College Football Playoff. He may lead Alabama to a second straight national championship in January. All of this points towards the Tide dominating once again, and all eyes will be on Young next season.

While Alabama football will likely lose two star receivers and a key running back, there will be plenty of potential next year. Younger receivers have shown flashes all season, and they will get the opportunity to step up next year. Once Alabama’s running backs are healthy, they will have a deep group in the backfield.

On the offensive line, the Tide could see improvement. This year was rough for Alabama football, and they will be losing the best left tackle in the sport. However, the 2021 class had loads of talent up front, and those players will likely step in this year. At the very least, there is potential on the line heading into the 2022 offseason.

Now, Heisman fatigue is a thing. Young will have to play even better next year if he wants to repeat. Still, this is very possible. Alabama has a schedule that will keep Young on voters’ screens. He will have name recognition after already winning the award.

There is a reason that only one person has won the Heisman Trophy twice. That being said, Young has all the potential in the world at quarterback. He will face adversity, but he’s already proven that he is worthy of consideration. If he puts up similar stats next season, he could go two for two.
