Sourdough Sam Biography

Sourdough Sam is the hardest working mascot in the NFL. Striking gold at Candlestick Park in 1994, Sourdough was drafted to the 49ers to be the the team’s official mascot! Sourdough Sam (SDS) is a gold miner that loves to have fun and pump up the 49ers Faithful at every home game. Known for his love of sourdough bread, SDS would take the bread with him on a hard day’s work of digging in the gold mines. With his miner’s pick in the air, Sam leads the San Francisco 49ers onto the field at Levi’s® Stadium.

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) the Gold Rush cheer squad (they just don’t know it yet). Sometimes Sam grabs his light up guitar pick-axe and rocks out with the bands that play at the Faithful Mile. Sam loves it when you’re faithful, so be sure to dress up in your best 49ers miner’s outfit. He just might throw some free stuff your way. If he’s not at Levi’s Stadium Sam goes searching for gold at one of his many bay area community appearances.

Sourdough Sam Fun Facts

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. 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!

If you are looking for someone who’s 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). Sourdough Sam is the perfect addition to any event for any 49ers fan, young and old. 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 an event with a mascot who is going to make the best memories possible!

Thank you for being Faithful and GO NINERS!
