Terrell Owens Named Honorary Game Captain

Former 49ers standout, Terrell Owens, will be the team's honorary game captain this Sunday at Candlestick Park.

Owens will be in attendance to help celebrate one of the Top Ten 49ers Moments at Candlestick Park, presented by SAP.

Owens' game-winning touchdown catch in a 30-27 playoff win over the Green Bay Packers was selected as the No. 4 greatest moment in Candlestick Park. Owens famously caught a 25-yard touchdown from Steve Young to beat the Green Bay Packers on Jan. 3, 1999 in the NFC Wildcard Playoffs.

Owens played in 121 games for the 49ers from 1996-2003. He ranks No. 7 all-time on San Francisco's scoring list with 502 points during his eight seasons with the team.

The flamboyant wide receiver is second on the team with 83 touchdown receptions behind Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice, who had 187 touchdowns, the most in NFL history.

Owens also ranked second behind Rice in receptions (592), receiving yards (8,572), 100-yard receiving games (25), 1,000-yard receiving seasons (5) and receiving touchdowns (81).
