The NFL Loses A Legend
04 Jun, 2018
San Francisco 49ers great Dwight Clark passed away Monday at the age of 61, his family confirmed.
Clark will be best remembered for his role in “The Catch,” the game-winning touchdown reception at the end of the 1981 NFC Championship Game, which sent San Francisco to its first Super Bowl and ignited a dynasty.
Clark spent the entirety of his nine-year career with the 49ers. Clark ranks third and fourth in franchise history in receiving yards and receptions, respectively.
A two-time All-Pro receiver and two-time Super Bowl champion with the Niners, Clark was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, in March 2017.
