‘Torrey Smith: Draw My Life’ features his Week 13 charitable cause

Nov 30, 2016 at 3:40 PM--


Whistle Sports has posted an interesting video on YouTube featuring San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith. The video draws out Smith's life from childhood to the NFL with the big moments in his life drawn out.




"You can't control where you come from or your family situation, but you can control your future by making smart decisions and further your education," Smith says in the video. "That's something that I live by and I wouldn't be here and you wouldn't be looking at me draw my life if I didn't follow these truths."

Week 13 will see the NFL relax their uniform rules for one weekend to allow players to wear custom cleats that reflect their commitment to charitable causes. Smith's will be representing the Torrey Smith Family Fund, which aims to provide youth with the tools they need to identify, unleash, and reach their full potential.

After spending his college days more than halfway across the country in South Bend, Indiana, offensive lineman Aaron Banks sounds more than happy to be returning home to start his career in the NFL. Banks, who is a product of Alameda, California, where he played his high school ball at El Cerrito High School, will be coming back to the Bay Area after being selected in the second round of the NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. Not surprisingly, his reaction as well as the reaction of those around him was one of sheer elation when the 49ers announced the news. "It is insane," Banks told reporters after being drafted on Friday. "It's funny because all my high school coaches are here and every single one of them (are) 49ers fans through and through, wearing their



49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo understands that competition is part of NFL life

When the San Francisco 49ers traded for Jimmy Garoppolo in 2017, he was seen as the team's quarterback of the future. He was the player who would solidify the position — the most important in sports — for years to come. Three years after signing a long-term deal with the team, the Niners drafted Garoppolo's eventual replacement. San Francisco made Trey Lance of North Dakota State the No. 3 overall pick last week. Garoppolo remains in the 49ers' plans for the upcoming season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has repeatedly stated that the veteran quarterback will be his starter for Week 1 while leaving the door cracked open for the rookie by saying anything is possible. For now, Garoppolo will be the man under center. However, behind him on the depth chart is

Are the 49ers looking to follow in the footsteps of the rest of the league and add a multidimensional quarterback like Patrick Mahomes or Josh Allen to their roster? Not necessarily, based on what 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday. With the 49ers set to add a quarterback with the third overall pick in this week's NFL Draft and a contrast in styles expected to be available to them in perceived pocket passer Mac Jones along with higher-athleticism candidates in Trey Lance and Justin Fields, there's been some discussion in the past over whether or not the 49ers will choose to follow league trends and emphasize athleticism in their selection. Shanahan addressed that topic during the 49ers' predraft press conference on Monday, saying he doesn't let any single style or

Now that Trey Lance is a member of the San Francisco 49ers, the question becomes when he'll get his chance to see the field. But for now, Lance doesn't seem to be thinking that far ahead and is instead focusing on getting his feet wet in the Bay Area. In particular, Lance is looking forward to getting to know his teammates, including current starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and learning everything he can about his new team and his new home. Lance spoke to 49ers beat reporters for the first time Thursday night after the team made him the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Lance was asked if he expected a similar situation as the one he experienced in college at North Dakota State, where he spent time on the sidelines before taking over the starting
