Get excited, Bay Area football fans. Two locals have made the Harris Poll’s list of Greatest Football Player.

Joe Montana jumped ahead two spots to number one, while Tom Brady – who hails from San Mateo – joined the ranks in the number two spot.

Other notables on the list: Peyton Manning at number three, Walter Payton at number four.

Babe Ruth was named the Greatest Baseball Player while Michael Jordan is considered the Greatest Basketball Player of all times (no surprise here).

The Greatest Golfer? Tiger Woods. And Serena Williams snagged the number one spot for Greatest Tennis Player.

One of the longest running surveys, the latest Harris Poll, was conducted online with the U.S. between Sept. 9 to 17 among 2,398 adults.
