Green Bay Packer #96 -- Michael Montgomery -- was a defensive end with a history of 123 tackles and 5 sacks. He also harbored a little-known secret -- he was born with a potentially life-threatening congenital heart defect. Had it not been for the quick thinking of the Texas A & M football staff, Michael Montgomery very well could have died in college and would never have played professional football. Today he talks with Anna about how his heart defect was diagnosed, what happened after the diagnosis, what it meant to him to play professional football and what he's doing now to help save other athletes from potentially succumbing to an undiagnosed heart defect.
