SANTA CLARA, Calif. - A strength coach for the 49ers played a big role in bringing the Paradise High School football team, along with coaches and cheerleaders, to a game at Levi Stadium on Monday.

Shane Wallen, who works for the team, is also a Paradise native and Pleasant Valley High alumnus. 

When he heard about the destruction taking place in his hometown due to the Camp Fire, he went to other staff members of the 49ers and helped to coordinate a trip for the team

The team provided buses to take the Paradise High School football team, along with coaches and cheerleaders, to Monday night's game. 

The team stood with the 49ers football players before the game during the national anthem, and a moment of silence was observed for victims of the deadly Camp Fire. 

Additionally, before the game, the team got a tour of the locker room where they met General Manager John Lynch. 

Wallen also presented a special jersey made for the town of Paradise, which features the town's name on the back as well as the date that the fire started. 

Listen to Wallen's full interview in the video.
