Joseph Clifford Montana, Jr. (born June 11, 1956 in New Eagle, Pennsylvania) was widely considered one of the best football quarterbacks in the history of the National Football League. He is of Italian descent. He led the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowls (1981 season, 1984 season, 1988 season, 1989 season) and became the only player to win three Super Bowl MVP awards. He was also the first player in league history to win two
Associated Press MVP awards, as he did so for the 1989 and 1990 season. In 1990, he received Sports Illustrated magazine's "Sportsman of the Year" award, and he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000. His moniker, Joe Cool, is given to him because of his ability to come up big when
his team needed to win.
