Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dwight Edward Clark (born January 8, 1957 in Kinston, North Carolina) is a former American Pro Bowl wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers from 1979 to 1987. He played college football at Clemson University before being drafted by the 49ers in the 10th round of the 1979 entry draft. In 1979, the head coach of the 49ers, Bill Walsh, went to Clemson to evaluate that school's promising quarterback, Steve Fuller. While there, Walsh discovered Clark. According to a story Clark shared while being interviewed on WDNC radio on July 31, 2007, Walsh had called the number for the dormitory room where Fuller and Clark were living, hoping to reach Fuller. Instead, Clark, who was on his way out to play golf, answered the phone. Upon learning that Fuller was not in, Walsh asked Clark to identify himself, and invited Clark to run routes for Fuller so Walsh could watch Fuller more closely.show more
