Wednesday’s news that this same QB declined an offer from the Fighting Irish Notre Dame would also seem somewhat inconsequential.
That this gun slinger is going into his senior high school season throwing passes to team mate WR Trey Smith, the son of Hollywood actor Will Smith (WR Trey Smith) AND he is keeping backup QB Trevor Gretzky on the bench, the son of NHL ice hockey legend Wayne Gretzky is bizarre enough.
This is where it truly goes ‘radio rentals’ (for all you non UK fans this is Cockney rhyming slang for mental) as the passer in question (seen left wearing the #5 shirt) is none other that the son of four time Superbowl winning quarterback Joe Montana – Mr Nick Montana.
Trust me you could not make this up. Don’t believe me – click here.
This would be the UK equivalent of Hugh Grant’s son (not that I think he even has one), David Beckham’s son Romeo and Ian Botham’s son (English cricket legend) all playing for the same school Sixth-Form football team (soccer).
As Dizzy Rascal would say ‘BONKERS’.
Only in America! And this ladies and gentlemen is why I love our friends over the other side of the pond.
Anyone ALREADY getting excited about the 2014 NFL Draft (assuming that Montana Jnr does not apply for NFL draft eligibility as a junior) ?
