Runager took over the 49ers punting job from Tom Orosz in 1984 and held onto it through part of the ’88 season. At that point, he was near the end of a career that started in 1979, after going to the University of South Carolina, and ended in 1989. He had punted for the Eagles in the early ’80s. His father, Geb, was recently named citizen of the year for Orangeburg, S.C., in 2008. Max apparently still lives in South Carolina and got a doctorate in education from Nova University.
