Book excerpt: In San Francisco 49ers: Where Have You Gone? many memories are revisited through profiles of 49 former players, ranging from colorful Visco Grgich, an original member of the organization, to Steve Young, the latest from the organization to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Long before Young was honored in Canton, Ohio, in 2005, the 49ers have been well-represented in the pro football mecca. Among the Hall of Famers from the team's rich past are Joe Perry, Hugh McElhenny, Y.A. Tittle and Ob St. Clair. What became of those players? We have the answers in this book. Many former 49ers players' accomplishments after their playing careers concluded are just as noteworthy and amazing as what they did on the football field. John Woudenberg, Clay Matthews, Bernie Casey and John Frank each left the game at a young age to begin carving out ultra-successful careers outside of athletics. There are plenty of inspiring stories throughout the pages of San Francisco 49ers: Where Have You Gone?, such as John Brodie demonstrating an indomitable spirit after nearly losing his life to a stroke in 2000; David Kopay coming out of the closet to be a leader in the gay and lesbian community; Eason Ramson turning his life around after drugs and crime nearly destroyed him; and Jeff Fuller living a full and rewarding life after his promising career came to a sudden end with one of the scariest moments in franchise history. The answers are here for the question every die-hard fan has asked through the years, San Francisco 49ers: Where Have You Gone?
