July usually signals the start of high school football players trying to get in shape before August two-a-days begin, hoping to be ready to win their position battle. It's safe to say that the highest-profile jockeying for starting quarterback in the nation will take place at Oaks Christian School, in Westlake Village, CA.
It's apparently a six-person scramble for the job, but two of the names you may recognize: Nick Montana and Trevor Gretzky. Perhaps you're more familiar with their dads, Joe Montana and Wayne Gretzky. The younger Montana is the latest in a long line of transfers to join the Lions.
Nicholas Montana, a 6-foot-2 junior who is the son of NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana, has enrolled at the private Westlake Village school.
Montana, the starting junior varsity quarterback at Concord De La Salle last season, filed his admission papers for Oaks Christian online last week.
It's all made more amazing when you consider that they'll be competing to throw touchdowns to Trey Smith, Will Smith's son, a wide receiver on the team.
Those should be quite the star-studded bleachers.
