BOARDMAN, Ohio – Good morning 49ers Faithful. By the time most of you on the West Coast are reading this, 49ers.com will be taking a journey to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
But first, let’s take a look at the top headlines from the team’s first day in the Youngstown area.
The team turned the page from a Week 3 loss in the best way possible by visiting the Akron Children’s Hospital and two schools in the Youngstown community. Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News has the details from the team’s uplifting hospital visit.
“The 49ers responded to their first loss of the season by doing some soul searching Monday. But this wasn’t your typical therapy,” Inman wrote. “Instead of flying home to the Bay Area after Sunday’s 24-13 upset loss at Minnesota, the 49ers began their five-day layover in this nondescript Midwest suburb by making community appearances, including a stop at the Akron Children’s Hospital.”
Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee shares the good news on Patrick Willis and Isaac Sopoaga’s x-ray results in a rundown of all the latest happenings with the 49ers.
WKBN 27 News of Ohio shares photos, videos and a story of the team’s community outreach in Ohio.
John Vargo of the Tribune Chronicle shares Randy Moss’ comments from the hospital visit. Moss: “I think it’s great for the soul. I think it’s great for the mind to really be able to come to see these kids, see their parents when they’re feeling down and out and put a smile on their face. That’s what life is about is happiness and seeing other people happy. For us to come over to this children’s hospital, it was a blessing for us to be here.”
49ers.com covered the surprising visit of legendary running back Jim Brown to team headquarters in Ohio.
