The 49ers will soon be adding to the teams Hall of Fame and it will make fans very happy.
The 49ers will soon announce that the team will be adding Defensive Tackle Bryant Young to the teams Hall of Fame.
“You could not ask for someone to be a better 49er and a better human being than Bryant Young,” said 49ers CEO Jed York. “There was no question he was the heart and soul of this team as a player and a person who took great pride in wearing the SF oval. He exemplifies the championship culture we strive for in the game of football and in life. During his 14-year career, B.Y. was an eight-time recipient of the Len Eshmont Award, the most prestigious honor a 49er can receive for their inspirational and courageous play as selected by their teammates. Bryant’s contributions to our franchise, our community and the game of football are numerous and I am hopeful that another Hall of Fame is in his future.”
Young, a First Round draft pick out of Notre Dame University, played with the 49ers from 1994-2007, starting 208 games and racking up 1,146 total tackles, 89.5 sacks, 12 forced fumbles and 7 fumble recoveries. Young is currently working with the Atlanta Falcons as their Defensive Line Coach.
