Draft Scout Ty Montgomery News
10/14/14 - OCT 13 PAC-12 SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Stanford Wide receiver/KR Ty Montgomery, a senior from Dallas netted 206 all-purpose yards in the 34-17 Cardinal win over Washington State. He tallied 71 of those yards on kick returns (3 returns) and 63 yards came on punt returns (3 returns). With 13 touches in the game, Montgomery averaged 15.9 yards per touch. Montgomery ranks in the top 10 in the nation for both punt return and kick return average. His punt return average of 21.6 ranks sixth, while his kickoff return average of 29.1 ranks tenth. Also nominated for Special Teams Player of the Week: Claude Pelon, DT, USC. - Pac-12 football
10/11/14 - Kevin Hogan threw for 284 yards and three touchdowns and No. 25 Stanford slowed down Connor Halliday and the Air Raid offense in a 34-17 victory over Washington State on Friday night. Greg Taboado grabbed his first two career TDs and fellow tight end Eric Cotton had his first scoring catch to help the Cardinal (4-2, 2-1) rebound from a nonconference loss at Notre Dame and renew their chase for a third straight Pac-12 championship. A week after Halliday threw for an NCAA-record 734 yards in a 60-59 loss to California, the nation's stingiest scoring defense harassed him all over the backfield.
Stanford held Halliday to 42-for-69 passing for 292 yards and two touchdowns, forced one interception and had four sacks. The Cougars (2-5, 1-3) have lost two in a row, and their chances of making consecutive bowl games under Mike Leach look dim. Ty Montgomery hauled in seven passes for 72 yards, Cotton caught a 39-yard TD pass and Taboado tallied two short scores from Hogan to give the Cardinal a 24-10 lead. Hogan completed 23 of 35 passes. - AP Sports
08/11/14 - 2014 PRESEASON MAXWELL AWARD WATCH LIST: Ty Montgomery, Stanford, Wide Receiver, Senior...The team’s leading pass catcher in 13 of its 14 games of 2013, Montgomery caught 61 passes for 958 yards (15.7 yards per reception) with 10 touchdowns. He was earlier named preseason All-American at specialist by Athlon. - Stanford football
07/31/14 - Stanford receiver and All-America kick returner Ty Montgomery said he's in the final stages of his rehabilitation from right shoulder surgery and hopes to play in the opener against UC Davis on Aug. 30. Montgomery said Wednesday he played through the shoulder injury part of last season before having surgery in February. He also hurt a knee in the Cardinal's loss to Michigan State in the Rose Bowl, an injury he said was "minor." Montgomery said he's already lifting weights, running routes and catching passes. He said he's just waiting for team doctors to clear him for contact drills. "Whenever they tell me I can play, I'm ready to play," Montgomery said.
Montgomery's self-diagnosis at Bay Area College Football Media Day at the 49ers' new stadium sounded more optimistic than what Cardinal coach David Shaw said last week. Shaw said at Pac-12 media days in Los Angeles that Montgomery would probably sit out the season opener and is questionable for Stanford's home game against Southern California on Sept. 6. Shaw stuck by that statement Wednesday, but he also said Montgomery might not miss any games. He said team doctors will make the decision on when Montgomery plays. "I never follow the direction of the player. I always follow the direction of the doctors," Shaw said. "We'll see. Ty's ahead of schedule. He's ahead of schedule. He's a phenomenal athlete. And if he's ready to go Game 1 and the doctors say, 'You know what, he's at limited risk for re-injury, let's let him go play,' I'm all for it. - AP Sports

A political science major at Stanford, Montgomery finished second nationally in kickoff return average (30.3) in 2013. Montgomery was the only player on a BCS conference team with two kickoff returns for a touchdown. He finished ninth nationally in all-purpose yards (157.7/game) in 2013, with 2,208 all-purpose yards.
