Reporter of the Associated Press used a standard lead in the obituary about Freddie Solomon, "the former Miami Dolphins and 49ers wide receiver who became known as 'Fabulous Freddie.'" The story begins with the name of the subject, followed by an identifier of his most distinct achievement and his age. This lead is strong enough to summarize Solomon's achievements - a famous football player. Comments from the 49ers and Hall of Fame are weaved into the obit to create a profile of Solomon, highlighting his football career. Not only does this story recall Solomon's football career, it also brings alive his sportsmanship and contributions outside the football field. With quotes from his former coaches and friends, the obit is turned away from being a translation of Solomon's resume.
