Former 49ers defensive back Lynn Thomas has died, the team announced Wednesday. Thomas was 61. The 49ers made Thomas a fifth-round choice in 1981 out of the University of Pittsburgh.
As the delayed season of high school varsity football continues, this week's 49ers PREP High School Player of the Week presented by U.S. Bank is awarded to Max Griffiths for his excellence on the field and persistent dedication to the Leigh Longhorns, led by head coach Kevin Padia. Max Griffiths always seems to find ways of making impactful plays in any situation and that was exactly what happened during Friday's win vs. the Westmont Warriors.
