Ferocious hitter and all out professional

I got the chance to chat with one of the most accomplished defensive backs in NFL history, Ronnie Lott. Lott, who switched from cornerback to strong safety to free safety during his career, played 14 seasons. 10 of those seasons were with the San Francisco 49ers where along with all-time greats  Joe Montana and Jerry Rice he won four Super Bowl titles in the 1980’s. During his Hall of Fame career, the 10 time Pro Bowler produced big hits and stats alike, totaling 1,133 tackles, 63 interceptions (5 TD’s) and 16 forced fumbles in 192 games (189 starts). In 20 postseason games he recorded 89 tackles, 9 interceptions and one forced fumble.

Additionally, he played his college football at USC under the guidance of legendary coach John Robinson and along side Marc Mitchell, my father. He also played in high school at Eisenhower High School in Rialto, California…my former hometown.
