Another Montana steals the show

May 1, 2010

Nick Montana (#5) showed great poise and leadership in his first ever spring game leading the Purple to a 14-13 victory.

Earlier in the spring season we reported on the success of Nate Montana’s spring game in South Bend. Now it looks like another Montana is shining but over on the west coast.  The Huskies’ nation got their first glimpse of Nick Montana during Washington’s annual Spring Game last night. Over 15,000 Huskies fans stood in the wind and rain to watch the son of Hall of Fame QB Joe Montana lead the Purple (No. 2 offense and No . 1 defense) to a miraculous 14-13 win over the White team (No. 1 offense and No. 2 defense).

Nick graduated early from Oaks Christian High in Westlake Village, CA, to participate in this year’s spring practice and game. His performance must be a sign of relief for the Huskies as he clearly showed he is ready for the college game. Montana stole the show going 21 of 34 for 156 yards and 2 TDs with one INT.

What his spring game performance did was place him atop of Keith Price as back-up to longtime QB Jake Locker. Price went 4 of 9 for 38 yards and an INT. Locker did not see much action going 3 of 7 for 15 yards. Though Locker was not pleased with his performance, he was very impressed with Montana’s play and thought Montana controlled the huddle and ball very well.

There certainly is no QB controversy in Washington. Locker is the starter and he is projected to be a #1 draft pick in next year’s NFL draft. All Montana’s performance did was eliminate the fear of not having a strong quarterback for the years to come.
