T.O. to join Montana, Young & Rice in 49ers Hall of Fame.
The San Francisco 49ers have officially announced that Terrell Owens will be inducted into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame.
Owens, who received NFL Hall of Fame gold jacket in 2018, will be the 28th inductee into the Hall of Fame which includes Niners legends such as Joe Montana, Steve Young, and Jerry Rice.
“I am so humbled to be mentioned with the likes and greats of Joe Montana, Steve Young, Jerry Rice and many others that have represented the San Francisco 49ers organization,” said Owens.
“I wouldn’t be who I am and have accomplished what I did, number one, without God and without the push of my teammates and coaches, especially Coach Larry Kirksey and Coach George Stewart. The Bay Area is where I began my career, and I will forever be indebted to the 49ers and recognized as one of the 49ers greats. I am honored to be inducted in the 49ers Hall of Fame as this is a special moment with a special group of individuals. Thank you, again, to the 49ers organization and 49ers Faithful.”
Owens, who was drafted 89th overall by San Francisco in the 1996 NFL Draft, spent eight years with the team.
He ranks second in franchise history in receptions (592), receiving yards (8,572), receiving touchdowns (81), games with 100-or-more receiving yards (25) and 1,000-yard seasons (five), trailing only Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. and Jerry Rice in each category.
