Alumni Board

The 49ers Alumni Board consists of former 49ers players who serve many valuable roles for the 49ers organization. The mission of the Alumni Board is to actively serve the community while being a valuable resource to football operations, and to aid the connection of past and present players.

A true gentlemen and an ironman of his time, Sapolu spent 15 seasons wearing the red & gold of the 49ers and earned Pro Bowl honors as both a guard and a center.

Sapolu is one of six 49ers to own four Super Bowl Championship Rings and of those six players, he is the only one with a ring from Super Bowl XXIX. He was a member of the 1984, 1988, 1989 and 1994 Super Bowl teams.

After retiring from the NFL in 1997, Sapolu remained in California and is the Vice President of Security Protection Services. He has four children, two recently graduated from college and two remain in school.

ERIC WRIGHT



A second round selection in 1981, Wright went on to play 10 seasons for the 49ers and was a two-time Pro Bowl selection at cornerback.

Wright is among the select group of 49ers who own four Super Bowl rings, winning Championships in 1981, 1984, 1988 and 1989. He also owns the unique distinction of recording an interception in three different Super Bowls.

Wright is involved in numerous projects around the Bay Area, including coaching youth basketball.

DWIGHT CLARK: BUSINESS CONSULTANT



At the end of the 2009 season, the 49ers hired Dwight Clark as a business operations consultant for the club. Clark currently works alongside 49ers Executive Vice President of Football and Business Operations Paraag Marathe and Vice President of Football Affairs Keena Turner. Clark focuses on special projects relating to business development, corporate hospitality, community investment, premium seating and the new stadium sales effort.

A legendary 49ers player, Clark spent his entire career in the Red and Gold (1979-87), before becoming an accomplished football executive and successful businessman. Since retiring from football, Clark has served as General Manager for both the San Francisco 49ers (1998) and the Cleveland Browns (1998-2002), and has also been involved in real estate development.

To the 49ers Faithful, Clark will always be remembered for what is simply known as “The Catch.” Trailing the Dallas Cowboys in the final minute of the 1981 NFC Championship Game, Clark leaped and miraculously caught a six-yard pass from quarterback Joe Montana in the back of the end zone to give the 49ers a 28–27 victory.

R.C. OWENS: ALUMNI ADVISOR



Owens is the measuring stick by which all 49ers alumni participation is measured by. Owens has been involved with the 49ers for over 50 years as both a player and administrator. In 1979, Owens joined the administrative side of the organization joining the inner circle of then Head Coach Bill Walsh and established the alumni department and set the standard that to this day the department is striving to maintain.

Owens spent five seasons with the 49ers after being drafted in the 14th round as a junior out of the College of Idaho. He didn’t play football in his junior year due to a dislocated shoulder injury. He became the first player in 49ers history to gain over 1,000 yards (1,032 yards), best known for his touchdown catches in the end zone from Y.A. Tittle and John Brodie that earned him the nickname “Alley-Oop” for his leaping ability.
