2x Super Bowl Champion & Current
Returns to Sports Gallery!
January 30, 2009, Former 49er Great and current coach Tom Rathman returned to
Sports Gallery for a fun evening in Palo Alto.
professional football career spanned nine years, the
first seven of which were with the San Francisco 49ers. While in San Francisco,
Tom was backfield mates with another Nebraska alumnus, Roger Craig. A selfless
player and unsung hero in the 49ers' success, Tom spent much of his playing time
providing devastating blocks for Craig, helping the Niners capture two World Championships
(Super Bowl XXIII and XXIV). In Super Bowl XXIV, Rathman scored two touchdowns
in San Francisco's route of the Denver Broncos. In 1989, he led all NFL running
backs in receiving with 73 receptions for 616 yards! And now Tom is back with
the 49ers as the Runningbacks Coach on Mike Singletary's staff.|
for over two hours, Tom was a great guest, casually chatting with fans, posing
for photos and signing every type of 49er and collectible imaginable (and even
a few Raiders & Nebraska memorabilia). Throw in Sourdough Sam and members
of the Goldrush and you have a fun, and very special, evening in Palo Alto for
all who attended.

of all thanks to all the 49er fans that made this such a fun evening.
