Montana Grizzly Football Spring Scrimmage and Nate Montana
Nate is the son of NFL QB Joe Montana. Nate transferred to the University of Montana from Notre Dame, where he saw only limited action. Nate hopes to earn the QB starting spot on a team that went to the FCS championship game in 2009. (UMs top two quarterbacks from last season's team are gone, and that opens up an opportunity for the "new guy.")
Joe Montana arrived in town on Friday to watch the scrimmage and spend some time with his son. Joe and his wife have visited Missoula on other occasions since Nate enrolled at UM. I think he might be more than a little interested in how Nate plays during the spring drills. Don't you think? Duh!
