Joe Montana’s Son Spikes Ball To Kill Clock — On Fourth Down (Video)


Nick Montana is the son of Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana, which is good for the most part. It’s a bummer, however, when Montana makes even the slightest mistake.

The younger Montana — who is the quarterback at Tulane University — made a pretty big error Saturday against Central Florida, and it’s tough to hide from a blooper like this when you’re the son of gridiron royalty.

With time running out in the second quarter and no timeouts left, Montana and the Green Wave offense rushed to the line. Montana, like any astute quarterback, decided to spike the ball in order to kill the clock. Here’s the problem, though: It was fourth down.


Who knows what would have happened had Montana and Tulane actually run a play in the final seconds. However, the Green Wave certainly could have used a score in that situation. They went on to lose 20-13, falling to 2-5 on the season.

Montana completed just 18 of 42 passes for 147 yards and two interceptions.
