Sourdough Sam Biography

Sourdough Sam is the hardest working mascot in the NFL. Sam struck gold at Candlestick Park in 1994, when he was drafted by the 49ers to be the team’s official mascot! Sourdough Sam is a gold miner that loves to have fun, and at each home game at Levi's® Stadium, Sam leads the team onto the field and pumps up the 49ers Faithful throughout the game.

When Sam is not on the field, you can find him riding roller coasters, and taking pictures at the Great America Pavilion with his girlfriend(s) on the Gold Rush cheerleading squad (They just don’t know it yet). At times Sam grabs his light-up guitar pick-axe, and rocks out with the bands that play at the Faithful Mile. Sam loves it when 49ers fans show their faith, so be sure to dress up in your best 49er miner's outfit. He just might throw some free stuff your way.

Sourdough has been known to bust out with his amazing dance moves when he hears awesome music! You better think twice before you get into a dance battle with this strutting miner (it usually doesn’t end well for the challenger). One of Sam’s ultimate favorite things to do is play the drums with his favorite band the "Niner Noise"!

Sammy knows how important it is to be healthy. Sourdough stays in such great shape by playing, and exercising outside for 60 min a day. Sam “Fuels Up” with good foods, and a lot of practice to be the best he can be.

When he’s not at Levi’s® Stadium, Sam can be found searching for gold at one of his many Bay Area community appearances. If you are looking for someone who is the life of the party AND is incredibly good looking… look no further (except, of course, if David Hasselhoff is behind Sam, then you are most likely looking for him). During the offseason, SDS loves to visit the youngest members of the 49ers Faithful at youth camps, schools, birthday parties and much more! For the more seasoned faithful fan if you have an event of any kind (corporate gatherings, festivals, charities, or special deliveries) Sourdough will impress you with his many talents! Sam is a friend to all. He greets everyone with a smile and a big knuckle pound! Energetic, funny, and kind hearted, Sourdough Sam represents the best of the 49ers. Don’t just have an event, have and event with a mascot who is going to make the best memories possible!
