Star Tribune Names Eden Prairie Football’s Antonio Montero ‘Metro Player of the Year’
Eden Prairie High School football player Antonio Montero has been named Star Tribune’s Metro Player of the Year.
According to the newspaper, if there’s a big play that’s been made by the Eagles, chances are Montero made it. In fact, Montero has been put in at multiple positions including running back, linebacker, kicker and punter.
“Playing each position with aplomb, Montero, a 6-foot, 215-pound senior, leads the top-ranked and undefeated Eagles in touchdowns (21) and tackles (108),” the newspaper reported. “In the Class 6A tournament semifinals, he led the defense with eight tackles and accounted for his team’s first 20 points in a 26-0 shutout of Maple Grove.”
Montero, who was a captain this season, has also been called the “heart and soul” of the team by his coach Mike Grant.
