Gordy Soltau will be the 23rd person inducted into the Edward J. DeBartolo, Sr. 49ers Hall of Fame. The three-time All-Pro during the 1950s will be honored for "his outstanding achievements and contributions to the 49ers organization" will be recognized during halftime of the team's Oct. 14 home game against the Giants.

Soltau spent his entire nine-year career with the 49ers as a receiver and kicker from 1950-58. A third-round pick by Green Bay out of Minnesota in 1950, he was traded to Cleveland and then San Francisco. He went on to lead the 49ers in scoring eight times, including leading the league in scoring in 1952 and '53.

He had 249 career catches for 3,487 yards and 25 touchdowns, while converting 70 of 139 field goals for 303 points.

Soltau is also a member of the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame

"Gordy Soltau epitomizes the qualifications we strive for when selecting inductees for the 49ers Hall of Fame," 49ers Chief Executive Officer Jed York said in a statement. "His contributions to the 49ers organization and the National Football League are well documented. The three-time All-Pro, who twice led the league in scoring, has never been far from the game he loves, having served as the first President of the San Francisco chapter of the NFL Alumni Association following his playing career. Gordy's commitment to the Bay Area community over the last 50 years is unmatched, particularly his effort with local youth."
