William Thomas Ring (born December 13, 1956) is a former NFL running back who played six seasons in the National Football League from (19811986). He was a reserve and special teams player for the San Francisco 49ers during the early success of the Bill Walsh era. Ring was considered a fan-favorite who was thought too small and too slow to be an NFL player but somehow found a way to hang on in the league for 6 years. He caught his first and only TD pass on December 6, 1981 against the Cincinnati Bengals at Riverfront Stadium, a game the 49ers would win 21-3. He currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, Connie, and their three children. His son, Billy is a former safety for the San Jose State Spartans.[1] He also has two daughters who both played D1 volleyball. The oldest, Katie, played for the UCSB Gauchos, and the youngest, Christie, played for the SDSU Aztecs.[citation needed]
