Well, it's not Monty Hall, but Joe Monty is getting ready to make a deal. Hailing from Wellington, Colorado, Joe attends Fort Collins High School and the three-year letterwinner knows that he has to do just about anything and everything on the gridiron to earn a scholarship.
"Crazy," Monty told Dawgman.com when asked what how his teammates might describe him.
"I'll do whatever it takes to make the tackle." And how does he do it? "My strengths are hitting
and getting to the ball. And my ability to read. I'm doing a lot better at that, keying on the reads."
His 4.8 40, 320-pound bench and 450-pound allow Joe the physicality to get the job done. It
sounds like he has a very defensive mentality out on the field, and that's where he wants to play
in college. "Linebacker," Joe said without hesitation. "That's what I'm being recruiting most at."
Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming and Colorado State are the main suitors
for Joe's services. The home town team are the only ones to offer Monty so far.
Who is the coach recruiting Joe for the Huskies? "Tony Alford," said Monty. "He says that they
are interested and that he is looking forward to recruiting me."
And Monty's interest in the Dawgs is there. "I like big cities, the variety of the mountains and
the oceans. And it's a big school, being in the Pac-10."
It's clear Joe is looking to escape the borders of the Centennial State when he names his
current leaders. "Wisconsin, Washington and Wyoming right now."
