SCHOOL: Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons

CLASS: 2019

HEIGHT: 5-11

WEIGHT: 170

SCOUTING: If you watch football – of any kind – you know and fully understand how important special teams can be in the overall outcome of any game.

Whether it’s high school, college or professional, there is no getting around how vital it is to have a return specialist, a long snapper, kicker and punter.

For Cardinal Gibbons, this is a program that has long produced solid special team performers, and this year is certainly no exception.

If you have watched Montiel punt the ball, you are shaking your head why colleges – like the University of Miami which so needs a specialist like this – are not camped out at his door, daily.

What Montiel has become is the No. 1 punting weapon in south Florida – if not the entire state. In addition, he kicks extra points and field goals – as well as kicks off.

In leading the Chiefs to a key district win over American Heritage, Montiel was certainly a huge reason why – in all phases of special teams.

If you are a college that needs a difference maker, this is your go-to player – guaranteed!
