University of Washington may be losing one quarterback, but next year they'll be gaining one with a famous dad. Whoopee!
On second thought, maybe Nick should take a less iconic number.
Future Husky Nick Montana is the son of NFL-great Joe and a senior at star-studded Oaks Christian in Los Angeles. (Where Wayne Gretzky and Will Smith's kids also suit up.) And as Bob Condotta's notebook-dump proves, having famous progeny is already doing wonders for Washington merchandising.
By the way, I saw one guy walking around in the parking lot yesterday with a purple UW No. 16 jersey with Montana on the back.
