Mexico pays tribute to Joe Montana

Posted by Ricardo Vázquez on October 06, 2014

Joe Montana, former quarterback of San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs, was celebrated Saturday in the Olympic University Stadium by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).

The ceremony was headed by dean José Narro Robles and NFL Mexico’s head, Arturo Olivé Hawley, among other sports personalities.

Montana got a plate as a recognition of his career and character and actions outside the gridiron, in the middle of a sounding ovation by football fanatics in the stadium.

Montana started his career in 1979 with San Francisco, where he played for the next 14 seasons, and then he spent his final two years in the league with the Kansas City Chiefs. With the 49ers, Montana started and won four Super Bowls and got three Super Bowl Most Valuable Player awards. Montana was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, in 2000.
