Watch ex-49ers assistant Keanon Lowe disarm gunman at Portland school

It's a video that has gone viral of a moment an Oregon coach disarmed a student who entered a school possessing a firearm.

Keanon Lowe, a former 49ers assistant coach, now serves as the head football coach and security guard at Parkrose High School in Portland, Ore. He's also a hero after preventing a shooting when he embraced a gunman and caused them to surrender his weapon:

The gunman walked into one of the buildings at the school with a shotgun hidden under a jacket he was carrying in his arms on May 17.

“I just wanted to let him know that I was there for him," Lowe told reporters. "I told him I was there to save him. I was there for a reason and that this is a life worth living.”

Lowe is also a former standout star wide receiver at the University of Oregon. 

“The universe works in amazing ways," Lowe added. "I’m lucky and I’m happy that I was in that classroom for all those kids and I was able to prevent that tragedy."

Nobody was injured in the events.

Why NBC Sports' Josh Norris has faith in Josh Jacobs, Raiders' O-line

Following a bye week for the fantasy outlook is a lot like a box of chocolates ... you don't know what you're going to get.

Josh Jacobs and the Raiders head into Week 7 with a game against the Green Bay Packers. and the first-round draft pick's fantasy value will continue to rise according to NBC Sports analyst Josh Norris.

"Josh Jacobs right now is one -- the best player on the Oakland Raiders' offense, and two -- possibly a top-10 running back in the NFL by season's end," Norris told NBC Sports Bay Area. 

Norris wanted to also give credit to the Raiders' offensive line for how they performed against the Chicago Bears in the 24-21 win in Week 5. 

Despite the off week, Jacobs might continue to be a force to stay away from opposing teams. But if you're a Jacobs' owner, count your blessings.

Even against a tough Packers defense, his rookie campaign cannot be ignored.

In the last outing for the running back, Jacobs ran for 123 yards with two touchdowns. That Packers D gives up 4.9 yards per carry and has allowed seven rushing touchdowns.

That's amazing news for owners. Start him if you weren't planning on it anyway.

Warriors GM Bob Myers breaks down what Marquese Chriss brings to team

Marquese Chriss hasn't wasted any time adjusting to the Warriors after being acquired in October.

"He's done a nice job, he's played in the five -- I don't think he's played a ton of five, screen-setting, just the littlest things," general manager Bob Myers told NBC Sports Bay Area's Bob Fitzgerald and Kelenna Azubuike during Friday's Warriors-Lakers telecast. "Changing his angle on the screens, he's learned to play off these guys."

"Sometimes you need a bit of a wakeup call to just start doing the little things."

The little things the big man has been working on stretch beyond his playing ability. Young Chriss, at just 22 years old, has already been on four teams in three years if you include the Dubs.

When he was brought in, he was viewed as someone to not only make an impact now but down the line.

The team hadn't had a high draft pick in several years and to get someone of his age and caliber is the perfect addition to the roster as Kerr explained after acquiring Chriss

Chriss looks forward to making a comeback after being plagued with a history of injuries. And the Warriors appear to be happy with the gamble they took. But time will tell.
