Joe Montana

Born Joseph C. Montana on June 11, 1956, in Monongahela, Pennsylvania. A former Notre Dame quarterback, he led the San Francisco 49ers to victories in four Super Bowls during the 1980s and was selected Most Valuable Player (MVP) in three (XVI, XIX, XXIV).

During his illustrious career with both the 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs, Montana led his teams to 31 fourth quarter come-from-behind wins, including a 92-yard drive in the closing seconds of Super Bowl XXIII. He won the NFL's passing title in 1987 and 1989, and topped the NFC in passing five times (1981, 1984, 1985, 1987, and 1989). He also owns the career playoff record for attempts, completions, touchdowns, and yards gained passing.

An inspirational leader and talented passer, he was named All-NFL three times and All-NFC on five occasions.
