Check out Tom Rathman’s new statue in the 49ers Hall of Fame

New, comments

It’s stationed next to Roger Craig, which seems fitting.

The San Francisco 49ers are honoring former fullback Tom Rathman this weekend, inducting him into the franchise’s Hall of Fame. Rathman was a key cog on the 49ers dominant offenses of the 80s, expanding the role of the fullback in the West Coast offense. He is being inducted as a player, but his work as running backs coach was universally praised by his players.

The team have added a Rathman statue to the 49ers Museum inside Levi’s Stadium. On Sunday, they unveiled the statue. Fittingly enough, Rathman’s was placed next to Roger Craig’s statue. Here is a picture of it, courtesy of the 49ers Museum Director, Jesse Lovejoy. The 49ers game-day magazine also features Rathman.
