It was the biggest of big games for B.J. and Alice Newton, grandparents of local football star and current 49er linebacker, #54 Larry Grant.

“I’m proud for him, whatever he’s doing I’m proud,” said B.J. “I think they’re going to the super bowl,” said Alice Newton.

Surrounded by friends and family, the party got rocking early. By the half it was time to eat, laugh and through down a few prognostications.

As the game wore on emotions ran high.

Unfortunately for the 49er faithful, and these friends and family of Larry Grant, It’s wait till next year.
