VHS lineman Michael Montgomery is expected to have a great 2020 season



Michael Montgomery

Vicksburg High School football player Michael Montgomery is expected to have a standout season for the Gators this year.

Montgomery is preparing for the Gators’ season opener against the Warren Central Vikings next Friday. He is one of few starters returning from last year’s team, and he has been a dominant player for the Gators since playing on the level. He spent last season blocking for the Gator offense and 1,000-yard rusher Ced Phillips. 

He was recently in a video posted on social media bench pressing 455 pounds, a feat rarely done in high school football. Not only does Montgomery have plenty of strength, he has size to go along with it. At 6 feet and 305 pounds, the combination makes it tough for his opponents to handle him on the field. Montgomery was gaining a reputation for being one of the strongest powerlifters in the state before the powerlifting season was canceled last year due to COVID-19.

Montgomery spent most of his varsity years playing under Tim Hughes, but in his senior year he will be playing under Todd McDaniel, the new VHS head coach. Expect college scouts to line up to see his performances this season as an offensive and defensive lineman.
