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.

The user's icon in the screenshot shared by Baker featured retired tackle Joe Staley's jersey number, making it safe to assume that the individual is a fan of the Bay Area team.

Dee Ford explains why his sights are set on playing every down for 49ers

Dee Ford is well-respected as a great NFL pass rusher. That isn't how he wants to be known, though. The San Francisco 49ers defensive end wants to be known as a great overall defender, and not a situational player. Ford suffered a calf injury during training camp and finally returned to practice this week. He told reporters on Thursday that he feels fine and is ready for the 2020 season. "When you're dealing with a calf, you don't want to risk it getting to that Achilles tendon," Ford said of the training-camp setback. "At the end of the day, we had to jump on it because our goal, and especially my goal, which is the team's goal, is to be there 16 games plus postseason. And I'm not going to waive on that at all. We just had to get that (injury)

49ers-Cardinals: Deebo Samuel misses another practice, making his availability for Sunday unlikely

The San Francisco 49ers got one wide receiver back this week, as rookie Brandon Aiyuk returned to practice. It doesn't look like they will be as lucky with another injured wideout. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch were hopeful to have second-year receiver Deebo Samuel on the field with Aiyuk on Sunday. That now seems unlikely after Samuel wasn't out on the practice field with his teammates on Friday. He has not practiced with the team since suffering a Jones fracture in June. No Deebo
