A football enthusiast from a young age, Joe Montana, started his career as a footballer in school and had already embarked upon a successful career. After a winning streak at ‘Notre Dame,’ he was selected by the ‘San Francisco 49ers’ in the third round of the ‘National Football League (NFL) Draft’. While at the NFL, he had a stellar career with the ‘49ers’ and ‘Kansas City Chiefs’. A pro at making comebacks in the late games, he directed his teams efficiently and led to their wins, leading an illustrious career as a footballer. The uncanny talent to revive his team from an apparent defeat, time and again, won him the title ‘Montana Magic’. He proved his mettle and won the NFL’s passing title twice and he also topped the NFC passing five times. Known for breaking records, he also passed six 300-yards making another record post-season. Among the many records he also became the only player to enter the Super Bowl thrice and won several awards which honoured his unbeatable performances. A true sportsman at heart, Montana has shown time and again that he plays to win and even lives his life the same way.
