SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Former Belhaven defensive back Tramaine Brock and current San Francisco 49er turned in an outstanding performance Sunday night in a 34-3 win over the Houston Texans. Brock intercepted Texans quarterback Matt Schaub twice and received one of the game balls on the nationally televised NBC Sunday Night Football broadcast.
Brock picked off a Schaub pass on the opening drive and returned it 18 yards for a touchdown for the first score of the game. Brock would later intercept another Schaub pass, setting up another 49ers score, and nearly had a third. It was his first multi interception game of his four year career with San Francisco. Brock also had a solo tackle and assisted on another in Sunday's game. On the season, Brock owns six total tackles and a pair of interceptions thanks to Sunday's performance.
Brock had this to say after the game about his interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter, which was his first TD since his senior season at Belhaven. "It wasn't something we saw on film during the week. We always call '55' and run a trap," Brock said. "We really didn't know that was going to come right there… We called a trap, so I just did my job, did my technique, and the ball came to me and I made a play." (Quote Courtesy of 49ers.com)
In 2009 as a Blazer, Brock had a team high six interceptions and returned two for touchdowns. Brock tied the Belhaven single season record for most interceptions and compiled 51 total tackles with 2.5 sacks and 13.5 tackles for a loss. Brock also returned kicks for the Blazers averaging 17.4 yards per return with a long of 55 yards. Brock was named to the Mid-South Conference Western Division All-Conference Team.
"I could not be more proud of Tramaine," Belhaven Head Coach Joe Thrasher said. "He continues to grow in the league and I think a lot of teams are paying attention to Tramaine."
Brock and the 49ers return to the field on Sunday when they host the Arizona Cardinals at 3:25 CDT. Various video highlights and stories can be viewed by clicking on the links below.
