Legendary Texas quarterback Vince Young recently took the stage playing Mother Ginger in Ballet Austin's production of "The Nutcracker."

At one point during the show, Young flashed the "Hook 'em Horns" sign.

It was a one-off performance for Young as the role of Mother Ginger is being portrayed by a different guest each week, according to Michael Barnes of Austin 360.

Young, a former first-round pick of the Tennessee Titans, spent six seasons in the NFL. He attempted a professional comeback with the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2017 but the team waived him after he tore his hamstring in training camp.
