Considered one of the best players of NFL history, Ronnie Lott's professional football career spanned 14 seasons, from 1981 to 1995, during which he won four Super Bowl titles with the San Francisco 49ers. Lott is a Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee, a tireless advocate for youth and children, and a coach and catalyst for other athletes who strive to make their community better.

Lott played college football for the University of Southern California, and was honored as a consensus All-American. A first-round pick in the 1981 NFL draft, he played for the San Francisco 49ers, Los Angeles Raiders, New York Jets, and Kansas City Chiefs. As an NFL cornerback and safety, he made more than 1,000 tackles.

USA Today has praised Lott as “one of the most successful athletes at making the transition to business.” Since retiring from the NFL, he has had the pleasure of serving as managing partner and founder of HRJ Capital alongside former San Francisco 49ers teammates Harris Barton and Joe Montana. In addition to owning two car dealerships, he is a trusted advisor to other athletes who are looking to go into business and serves on the Board of Directors of GSV Capital Corporation, a publicly traded investment fund.

Lott is well known and admired for his history of giving back to the community and inspiring other athletes to do so as well. His nonprofit, All Stars Helping Kids, has raised more than 20 million dollars to improve the lives of at-risk young people in the Bay Area.

Full Profile

Ronnie Lott, an All-American from Southern California, was the San Francisco 49ers’ first round draft pick and the eighth player chosen overall in the 1981 National Football League Draft. The 6-0, 203-pound defensive back made an immediate impression and was named the starting left cornerback from his first day in training camp.
In his first NFL season, Lott led a young secondary that helped the 49ers to win Super Bowl XVI. He became the second rookie in NFL history to return three interceptions for touchdowns. His outstanding play resulted in his finishing second for Rookie of the Year honors.

Known for his hard-hitting style, Lott was used at both left and right cornerback positions and as a free and strong safety during his 14-year career. The versatile defensive back earned 10 Pro Bowl invitations at three different positions – cornerback, free safety, and strong safety.

It was, however, at free safety, where he had the freedom to cover the whole field, that he may have been most effective. In 1986, he played 14 games at the free safety position before an injury sidelined him for the final two games of the season. Still, he led the league with a career-most 10 interceptions, recorded 77 tackles, three forced fumbles and two quarterback sacks. It was perhaps his finest season.

During his career with the 49ers (1981-90), Los Angeles Raiders (1991-92), and the New York Jets (1993-94) Lott recorded 63 career interceptions and twice led the league.

A complete player, he surpassed the 1,000-career tackle mark in 1993, and had five seasons of at least 100 tackles. In his ten seasons with the 49ers, San Francisco won eight NFC Western Division titles and four Super Bowls. In 20 playoff contests (all starts), he recorded nine interceptions, 89 tackles, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and two touchdowns.

It has been said that Lott had the uncanny ability of being able to sense the direction a play was about to take and then somehow disrupt it.

“He’s like a middle linebacker playing safety,” Hall of Fame coach Tom Landry once remarked. “He’s devastating. He may dominate the secondary better than anyone I’ve seen.”

Named All-Pro eight times, All-NFC six times, and All-AFC once, Lott was also selected to play in 10 Pro Bowls and was named to the NFL’s 75th Anniversary Team. He was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000.

Ronnie Lott highlights the qualities that make athletes great, praising the young athletes in his audience for their character. He claims that one of the most valuable and admirable traits that they have is their willingness to work together.

He discusses how at the Positive Coaching Alliance he reflected with the coaches and youth on what it takes to be part of a team. “One of the young men said, ‘selfless,’” Lott recounts. “I thought that was a great word, because I don’t know if a lot of us understand what that’s like…To hear these young men and women doing that, that’s phenomenal. That’s an incredible trait - that you can say that you’re selfless.”
