September 9, 2010 - Former Blazer defensive backTramaine Brock has earned a spot on the San Fransico 49ers 53 man roster. Brocks hard work in training camp this summer impressed the 49ers coaching staff. When you look at Brock, said 49ers head coach Mike Singetary, hes a kid who comes to practice and every day gets a little better.
In four games during the preseason, Brock had six total tackles as a defensive back/special teams player and came up with an interception against the San Diego Charges late in the fourth quarter to secure a win for San Francisco in their final preseason game.
Tramaine Brock and Jacob Phillips, both former Blazers, were two of only three NAIA players to sign NFL contracts in 2010. "Ill take any Tramaine Brock who wants to fall in my lap any day of the week," Belhaven coach Joe Thrasher said. "He came in and he was just as humble as can be. He comes to work every day. He was a kid who was never late for practice, never missed a meeting, and was Yes, sir, No, sir. If something ever happened, I could say, Tramaine, and hed already know what he did wrong and correct it. He made my job easy.
Of his performance during training camp Brock said, I wasnt thinking about my chances of making the team. I was just going out every day and competing. I just wanted to go out every day and get better and keep producing. Brock will be playing cornerback for the 49ers.
