When she was 13, Jodi Parriott dreamed of being a basketball star. But at 5 feet 5, she worried about her size. It didn't help her self-esteem that her older sister, Kari, was 6-2 and a standout at Long Beach State. Jodi was the 49ers' water girl in 1990 and would marvel at her sister's skills. "I used to dream about being as good as my sister," Jodi recalls. "But what I really hoped was that I would be as tall as her someday." Time and patience paid off.
