Things are going to get interesting this football season in Westlake Village, CA. That’s because there’s going to be a QB battle brewing, and it includes some of the best athletic genes ever.
Nicholas Montana, son of 4-time Super Bowl QB Joe Montana enrolled at Oaks Christian High School recently. So what happens when the QB son of a Hall of Fame QB applies to your school?
"The admission office called and asked, Do you know a Joe Montana? I said, Yeah I've heard of the guy,' " Oaks Christian football coach Bill Redell said. "They told me his son had applied here. I said, Gosh, that's a surprise.'Yeah, a surprise indeed. But it’s also a blessing for the coach, right?
That the 6-foot-2 Junior QB had done so would be interesting enough. What makes it even more noteworthy is that Montana will be competing for a starting spot against the spawn of an all-time great from another sport. That would be Trevor Gretzky. You know...Wayne’s son? They would need a famous son to pass to as well. But of course. Will Smith’s son Trey is a Wide Receiver on the squad.
And so while the 2006 season featuring Jimmy Clausen might have been Oaks Christian’s most celebrated season ever, the 2008 shall become the most celeb-rified. While the play on the field might be good, here’s guessing the attention will be focused on the stands. There might be as many fans as paparazzi.
