49ers ST Coordinator Richard Hightower spoke about what type of special player RB Raheem Mostert is and how he can set an example for other players arriving in San Francisco.
“I know it’s public knowledge now that Raheem was on six different teams, but we’ve been talking about that for a long time,” Hightower said, via Scott Bair. “We make sure every rookie knows that coming in, that every young guy understands what Raheem had to do to get where he is. We have so many examples of that. Our personnel people have done a great job getting guys in who understand what it takes to win games and play complementary football.”
