Ty Montgomery, running back for the NFL’s Green Bay Packers, will host “Passion, Purpose and Football: An Evening with Ty Montgomery” at Lambeau Field on November 1. The event will help fund a sixteen-week life skills course for teens in foster care. Those who complete the course are awarded a car.
“I grew up with 17 foster brothers, so foster care has always been dear to me and my family, and I’m excited to finally roll out our plans on what we’re doing to help with foster-teen education in Green Bay,” Montgomery told the Green Bay Press Gazette. The full story is on the Press Gazette‘s website.
Montgomery was a stand-out athlete at St. Mark’s and was named three times to the SPC’s All-Conference football team. He also played basketball (All-Conference 2011) and ran track (All-Conference 2011) for the Lions. He played college football for Stanford University (2011-2014), where he majored in political science and was a Consensus All-American in and First-Team All-PAC 12 in 2013.
