1996 San Francisco CFFL 49ers
Notes From The Owners:
My first season as the owner of the CFFL 49ers was very interesting.  I was able to draft my favorite player Steve Young.  Steve slipped through the cracks to the fourth pick in round one.  My starting team which was supposed to consist of Steve Young, Marshall Faulk, Rashaan Salam, Chris Carter, J.J. Stokes, Tamarick Vanover, Shannon Sharpe, Chris Boniol, and the San Francisco's Defensive Team.  That line-up was stricken with regular seasong injuries.  Players like Sharpe, Carter, Young, and the 49er's Defense, arose to the occassion when the team needed them the most.  With the help of Young and the Defense, the '96 team squeaked into the playoffs by beating the Giants (Mr. Meyer).  Then in the first week of the playoffs the team stepped up incredibly to beat a much better team the Bills (Russell Meyer & Jason Howard), our regular season Western Conference Champions.  Then in week two the team going in as the underdog once again against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Ed Meyer), played as overachievers and pulled out a stunning victory.  The teams cinderella season came to an end in the first ever Cove Fantasy Football League Championship game.  The CFFL 49ers lost to the CFFL Chiefs 74 to 47.
The 1996 49er's CFFL Team MVP
Congratulations to Steve Young who finished the year with 215 points.  Steve was in the top ten of quarterbacks at year end. He deserved the teams most valuable player do to his outstanding performance in the post season.  Steve carried the team towards the end of the season right into the Championship game.

Once again Congratulations to the 1996 San Francisco's CFFL Team MVP!!!!!
