Shreveport, La. His parents moved to Santa Monica two years later. He attended College of Idaho on a football and basketball scholarship, and while there talked his roommate, future Lakers great Elgin Baylor, out of playing football.
Even though he was selected in the 14th round of the 1956 NFL draft, Owens made an immediate splash. He was the 49ers' rookie of the year, with 27 catches for 395 yards and five touchdowns — big numbers in an era of running the football.
Owens played eight seasons in the NFL, his first five with the 49ers (1957-61), followed by two with the Baltimore Colts (1962-63) and one with the New York Giants (1964). He was the first NFL receiver to wear gloves, a holdover from those bitter-cold games in Idaho.
Owens had an effect on the game that extended beyond the field. Unhappy with a contract that paid him $10,500 for the 1960 season, he played out his option year in 1961 instead of signing a new deal with the 49ers. He then became a free agent, and the first to play out his option year then sign with another team, the Colts.
So jarring was that move that 49ers owner Vic Morabito never again spoke to Colts owner Carroll Rosenbloom. A year later, NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle devised the "Rozelle Rule," which required the signing team (in Owens' case, the Colts) to compensate the player's original team for the loss — usually in the form of money or draft picks.
No stranger to heartache, Owens was involved in a tragic car accident in June 1963 as he was driving to Colts training camp in Colorado. A tornado swept his car off the road, and his 3-year-old daughter, Pam, was killed. His 1-month-old son, Darren, sustained a fractured skull, which the family believed led to his death at age 7.
After his playing career, Owens worked in public relations for J.C. Penney Co. and later in a California office for the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. He returned to sports to work in marketing for the Oakland Stompers soccer team.
In 1979, Bill Walsh hired him to organize 49ers training camp, and Owens was reunited with the franchise that gave him his start. During more than two decades in the team's front office, he ran alumni relations for a franchise that would go on to win five Super Bowls, served as the point man for the club in the community and even donned a red suit and white beard to play Santa at Christmas.
Nicole Gisele, longtime administrative assistant to Hall of Fame coach Walsh, remembered Owens as an unfailingly upbeat ambassador for the franchise: "It was his motto: 'I'm two steps away! I'll be right the...
