San Mateo County History Makers

Dwight Hicks, Ronnie Lott, Carlton Williamson, Eric Wright

Please join us in celebrating this year’s San Mateo County History Makers Dwight Hicks, Ronnie Lott, Carlton Williamson, and Eric Wright, aka the “Hot Licks.”

Dwight Hicks, Ronnie Lott, Carlton Williamson, Eric Wright

The San Mateo County Historical Association is pleased to announce that former 49ers players Dwight Hicks, Ronnie Lott, Carlton Williamson, and Erick Wright are its 2022 San Mateo County History Makers. Affectionately called “Dwight Hicks and the Hot Licks” by fans, their incredible defensive play helped, materially, with the 1981 team winning the first Super Bowl in 49ers history.

With former 49er running back Bill Ring serving as Master of Ceremonies, the event will take place at the Grand Bay San Francisco hotel in Redwood Shores. The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with a hosted cocktail reception, followed by a dinner, a brief live auction, and a special Q&A session with the players.

From 1956 until 1988, when they moved their operations to Santa Clara, the San Francisco 49ers were headquartered and practiced at 711 Nevada Street in Redwood City.  Highly-regarded sports authorities believe the 49ers teams of 1980s transformed National Football League history.  Part of the huge success was the development of the defensive backfield which, in 1981, featured Dwight Hicks, a veteran, and three rookies, Carlton Williamson, Ronnie Lott and Eric Wright.
