The outside linebacker earned honorable mention all-conference recognition in 2013 and helped the Eagles to the third round of the state playoffs for the second straight season.

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. His father, Mike, pitched a season of minor-league baseball in the Philadelphia Phillies' organization after playing collegiately at East Tennessee State University. Montgomery plans to study sport management at Guilford.
