For his part, VY is humbled by the news:
"I'm really looking forward to getting back to Austin again, seeing everyone, reaching out to the community with my foundation event and cheering on my team," Young said. "I was speechless when they told me about the jersey retirement earlier this summer and I still don't think it's sunk in. It's such a great honor to be remembered in such a special way. Man, when I see that number and my name on the stadium ... I don't know what I'm going to do. It's just going to be such an unbelievable feeling for me and my family."
