Joe Montana is one of the iconic names in football history, a three-time Super Bowl MVP and eight-time Pro Bowl selection who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000. Set against the backdrop of late 20th century America, this biography traces Montana's life from working class childhood in Pennsylvania, through his college years at Notre Dame, and finally to his remarkable career in San Francisco and beyond.His story reverberates not only with history-making achievement and heart-pounding drama, but also with the doubt, struggle and conflict of a true underdog. Even after a successful college career, Montana was dismissed by many pro scouts as too ungifted and too small, he and was drafted to the San Francisco 49ers; one of the worst teams in the league. But what Montana brought to a football team could not be captured in a series of ones, twos and threes; he was a born leader. Once he got to San Francisco he led his team to victory again and again, and played a central role in the evolution of the West Coast Offense, revolutionizing the way football was played. Acclaimed author Keith Dunnavant brings Montana's dramatic journey to life in vivid detail, featuring interviews with 49ers teammates like Randy Cross and Bruce Collie, and even rock star Huey Lewis who is a close friend. MONTANA is at once intimate and comprehensive; a compelling biography of an American hero and how he changed the game of football.
