A lot of parallels: Elway has long been Lynch's idol, mentor

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch always wanted to be like John Elway, his idol growing up and his mentor in the NFL both on the football field and in the front office.

"John was a tremendous resource," Lynch said Saturday as his team wrapped up two days of joint practices with Elway's Denver Broncos in advance of their Monday night preseason game. "He's a good friend. We've got a lot of parallels in where we went to school and being two-sport athletes."

Both were tutored by celebrated California high school football coach Jack Neumeier and both were Stanford quarterbacks who also excelled on the baseball field before starring for the Broncos, albeit a decade apart and at different positions.
