Tiny 49ers fan salutes his father, a member of the Marine Corps

Nov 15, 2014 at 11:19 AM--


Last week was the NFL's Salute to Service, a league wide initiative to honor veterans and active duty members of the military.

During that time, 49erswebzone.com was contacted by a proud grandfather. His wish was that his son, Corporal Arturo Lopez, a member of the Marine Corps for almost five years and a new father, be able to see his baby boy's picture on a 49ers website. Having been deployed two months prior to his birth, he hasn't seen his son yet. Being a huge San Francisco 49ers fan, this would mean a lot to him.

Here is Arturo Alexander Lopez, son to a dedicated member of this nation's armed forces and grandson to a proud and thoughtful grandfather.



Corporal Arturo Lopez has been a 49ers fan since he was born and his father tells us that he is proud that his first born son is representing the best team in the world.

His father added, "What I can say to him is that we all love him and that we are all very proud of him for representing our country and the best team in the NFL. GO NINERS!!!!"

We here at 49erswebzone.com would like to thank Corporal Arturo Lopez for his service to this country, bravery, and dedication. Congratulations on the birth of your baby boy.

Below is a photo of Corporal Arturo Lopez.

49ers' Richard Sherman reacts to fan comment that Jets can't have K'Waun Williams or Jason Verrett

K'Waun Williams is one of nearly 40 San Francisco 49ers players scheduled to become free agents. And now, head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have their former defensive coordinator to contend with in free agency. On Thursday, the New York Jets named Robert Saleh as their new head coach, and there is some concern from the 49ers fanbase that many of the free agents on the defensive side of the football might follow their former coach. One fan stated on Twitter that Saleh could have a number of the 49ers defenders, including cornerback Richard Sherman. Two players who the fan hopes are untouchable are cornerbacks Jason Verrett and K'Waun Williams. Sherman (virtually and maybe in real life) laughed at the suggestion that Williams can't be allowed

Trent Williams calls 49ers his No. 1 destination but is curious about his free agency value

Veteran left tackle Trent Williams may be one of the San Francisco 49ers' most important offseason decisions. During last year's draft, the team traded for him as a replacement for the retired Joe Staley. William was to anchor the offensive line. Some questioned whether there would be some rust after the tackle missed all of the 2019 season. Williams finished the season as Pro Football Focus' highest-graded tackle and second-highest-graded offensive lineman. The 49ers cannot use the franchise tag on Williams. That was part of his deal's restructured final year, which was reworked following the trade from Washington to San Francisco. Now, Williams is slated to become a free agent. He would like to return to the 49ers, and the team would certainly like

NFL Draft Scout's Matt Miller, formerly of Bleacher Report, joined KNBR on Monday and discussed a topic that is sure to dominate San Francisco 49ers-related headlines until March — Jimmy Garoppolo. While many in the media believe head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch may keep their options open when it comes to upgrading the quarterback position, both have repeatedly backed Garoppolo as the team's starter heading into the 2021 season. "As for the quarterback position, Kyle and I both have spoken, and spoken fairly directly as to the fact that we expect Jimmy to be our quarterback," Lynch said on Monday. "That's consistently met with other stories, but
