Early Years and College

Joseph Clifford Montana was born in New Eagle, Pennsylvania, on June 11, 1956. He was a talented multi-sport athlete at Ringgold High School and received a basketball scholarship to North Carolina State University before enrolling at the University of Notre Dame to play football.

Montana was a seventh-string quarterback for the Fighting Irish at one point before taking over the starting job and leading the team to the 1977 national championship. After overcoming the flu to lead a comeback victory over the University of Houston in the 1979 Cotton Bowl, he was selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the third round of that year’s National Football League draft.

Pro Football Career

Montana, who was named starter near the end of his second season, proved to be an accurate quarterback with the ability to scramble to keep plays alive and remain calm in critical situations. His early career highlight came at the end of the 1981 NFC Championship Game, when he lofted a pass to a leaping Dwight Clark in the back of the end zone for the game-winning touchdown. He was named MVP of San Francisco’s Super Bowl XVI victory over the Cincinnati Bengals two weeks later.

The 49ers were the dominant NFL team of the 1980s, thanks to Montana and wide receiver Jerry Rice spearheading coach Bill Walsh’s West Coast offense. During the decade, they won seven NFC West titles and three Super Bowls: XIX, XXIII, and XXIV, with Montana earning game MVP honors in two of those victories. Most notably, in his third Super Bowl, “Joe Cool” shrugged off the mounting pressure of a fourth-quarter deficit against the Bengals, driving his offense 92 yards for the winning touchdown with less than a minute to play.

Montana led the 49ers to a 14-2 record in 1990, but he was injured in the NFC Championship Game against the New York Giants, and injuries kept him out for nearly the entire next two seasons. By the time he was fully recovered, the 49ers had already hired talented quarterback Steve Young and were ready to part ways with the player who had led the team to its pinnacle. Montana was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs in April 1993.

The veteran quarterback demonstrated that he still had the golden touch by leading the Chiefs to their first division title in 22 years and to the AFC Championship Game in 1993. Montana announced his retirement after one more solid season, which ended with a loss to the Miami Dolphins in the 1994 Wild Card playoff game. During his career, the four-time Super Bowl champion was twice named Associated Press MVP and was selected to eight Pro Bowls. He also set NFL playoff records for completions, yards, and touchdowns.

In his first year of eligibility, Montana was easily inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Arguably the greatest quarterback in history, he finished fourth on the NFL Network’s list of the game’s all-time top 100 players in 2010.

After retiring from football, the football legend kept a low profile. He was a food and wine connoisseur who owned an estate in Northern California wine country for several years, an area with plenty of horseback riding trails.

Personal Life

Montana has four children with his wife, Jennifer: Alexandra, Elizabeth, Nathaniel, and Nicholas. The two youngest brothers both played football for Division I colleges.
