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.

Mike McDaniel started working with Kyle Shanahan with the Houston Texans. He is one of the San Francisco 49ers head coach's most trusted assistants, serving as the team's run-game coordinator during his first four seasons in Santa Clara. In January, McDaniel was promoted to offensive coordinator, becoming the first coach under Shanahan to hold that title. "Immediately, you're trying to prove your worth and prove the people right that have really invested in you and invested in your career, and given you opportunities, and et cetera, et cetera," McDaniel recently told 49ers.com reporter Keiana Martin. "It instills a level of hunger on top of the hunger that you already had." After McDaniel

Pro Football Focus released its latest mock draft, courtesy of analyst Ben Linsey. The San Francisco 49ers are highly anticipated to select a quarterback following their recent trade up to the No. 3 spot. They'll have their choice of some good options. With Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson nearly a lock to go No. 1 and No. 2, San Francisco can go with Justin Fields of Ohio State, Trey Lance of North Dakota State, or Mac Jones of Alabama. Linsey has San Francisco going with the player who has been the popular choice among 49ers fans—Fields. "Fields' game has been put under the



Fowler: 49ers' draft moves could change plans for Jimmy Garoppolo

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is set to earn about $25 million this year. Whomever they pick at No. 3 overall will have a cap hit of about $6.2 million in 2021, per OverTheCap.com. If the gap between the two players isn't seen as great—and a lot of that may depend on actually getting the rookie into the building and seeing how fast he can progress—that could accelerate the plan to part ways with Garoppolo. Maybe something happens before the draft. Maybe it happens during, after, or even next year. For now, the 49ers sound comfortable keeping Garoppolo around for another season while their rookie quarterback sits and learns. It's a prudent plan considering the roster is built to compete for a championship right now. On Sunday, ESPN's



Peter King weighs in on Jimmy Garoppolo's status with 49ers, future with Patriots

NBC Sports' Peter King weighed in on Jimmy Garoppolo, his status with the San Francisco 49ers, and his potential future with the New England Patriots, the team the quarterback spent his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with. First, the 49ers. Count King among those who aren't confident that San Francisco will trade Garoppolo this year. The team has publicly stated that it plans to enter Week 1 with Garoppolo as the starter. Nothing the 49ers do at No. 3 may change that. Head coach Kyle Shanahan seems content with letting a rookie sit and learn for a year, which will be extremely beneficial considering his offense's complexity. Said general manager John Lynch last week:
