William Thomas Ring (born December 13, 1956 in Des Moines, Iowa) 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 currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, Connie, and their three children. His son, Billy is also a football player, and was a Safety for the San Jose State Spartans of San Jose State University. He also has a daughter, Christie, that plays volleyball at San Diego State University. [1].
