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' Kyle Shanahan Had His Peter Pan Moment

One of my favorite movies as a child was the 1991 classic Hook, a Steven Spielberg-directed sequel to the Peter Pan story, starring Robin Williams as a grown-up Peter Pan. The premise of the movie, for those that haven't seen it, follows an adult Peter Pan as he returns to Neverland to rescue his children from the still Pan-obsessed Captain James Hook. The Lost Boys, the group of perpetual children that Pan led while still in Neverland, do not recognize the now grown-up Peter Pan, nor does he remember his time there. Midway through the movie, after an epic, and colorful food fight, a Lost Boy named Pockets stands in front of a kneeling Peter Pan, playing with his face until he realizes, and exclaims, "oh, there you are



Steve Young: 49ers find their dogs, Jimmy Garoppolo at his best

A week ago, Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young wondered if the San Francisco 49ers had any dogs on the team. A conversation with a former teammate and another Hall of Fame player, Jerry Rice, led Young to ponder the question. "There's no dogs," Rice told Young. Of course, that was coming off an embarrassing loss to an injury-depleted Arizona Cardinals team. The quarterback turned ESPN analyst, like fans, saw a completely different squad on Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams. It was a dominant performance that ended with a 31-10 upset win and Kyle Shanahan's fifth consecutive



49ers-Jaguars: Deebo Samuel credits this player for his leap as a receiver, expects to play Sunday

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is dealing with a shin contusion and has been limited during practice this week. That probably won't keep him out of Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, though. "I'll be ready for Sunday," Samuel said after practice. "We're just taking our time. Just had a shin contusion, so just taking it slow, but we'll be ready." That's good news for the Niners. Samuel is the team's leading receiver, and his 979 receiving yards rank second among all NFL receivers this season. After struggling through injuries last season, the wideout has made a significant leap in his third year. Many, including Samuel, credit one player's influence for that leap as an offensive weapon. Samuel doesn't typically give long
