Dallas Cowboys Host New York Giants on Sunday Night Football
STAMFORD, Conn. – September 10, 2015 – Tomorrow’s “Together We Make Football” segment on TODAY highlights Flower Mound, Texas coaching duo Ragan and Albert Montero.
23-year-old Ragan Montero has been a football fan for as long as she can remember, but her love for the game really took off when she was 10 years old. As a spectator at her younger brother’s practice during football camp, Ragan caught the eye of her brother’s coach, Cody Vanderford, who eventually taught her game strategy and named her team manager. Three years later, she became an assistant coach under her father, Albert Montero, on the Flower Mound Rebels tackle team for 11- and 12-year-olds. The Rebels went on to win the championship that year, and ever since, Ragan has taken on the role of Offensive Coordinator helping lead the team to five more championships.
Sunday Night Football, television’s No. 1 primetime show, kicks off on Sunday, Sept. 13, when Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys host Eli Manning and the New York Giants in an NFC East showdown from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET with Football Night in America, the most-watched studio show in sports.
