QB Young's No. 8 jersey will be retired by 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers will retire former star quarterback Steve Young's jersey on Oct. 5.

Young, the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XXIX, will be the 11th player in franchise history to have his number retired.

"Steve Young is an important part of the 49ers' history and tradition," 49ers owner John York said. "He combined talent, character and a tremendous work ethic to become an incomparable performer and champion on the field. He was a model professional, and he influenced many of the younger players with his dedication."
