He was named the team's Offensive Back of the Year all four years at Blue Ridge and a 2014 all-conference selection. Montgomery won the Greenville Touchdown Club Player of the Week Award three times during his high school career. He also earned all-league honors as a catcher and pitcher on the baseball team in 2013.
