Jim Fahnhorst followed his older brother Keith to the University of Minnesota and earned First Team All Big 10 honors as a senior in 1981.  He was drafted in the fourth round by his hometown Vikings in 1982 but never played a game in purple.  After two years in the USFL, he joined Keith again with the San Francisco 49ers in 1984.  He spent seven years in San Francisco beginning as a special teams player and culminating as a starting inside linebacker.  He won three Super Bowls during his career with the Niners.
