Dwight Edward Clark, b. January 8, 1957 at Kinston, North Carolina


Dwight Clark was a Pro Bowl wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers. He played his college football at Clemson University before being drafted in the 10th round of the 1979 entry draft. Clark embarked on a fine career in which he had 506 catches for 6750 yards and 48 touchdowns.


Clark's most memorable touchdown came in the 1982 NFC Playoffs. On January 11, 1982, against the Dallas Cowboys, the San Francisco 49ers were trailing 27-21 in the final minute of play to advance to the Super Bowl. Clark caught a short pass from quarterback Joe Montana in the back of the end zone to give the 49ers a 28-27 victory. That play is one of the most famous in the history in the NFL and has been immortalized as "The Catch".


Clark was a member of two Super Bowl winning clubs. His number 87 has been retired by the 49ers. After retirement, he has served as a team executive for both the San Francisco 49ers and the Cleveland Browns.
