IOWA CITY — Former Iowa all-American Dallas Clark has been selected Iowa’s honorary captain for Saturday’s contest against Illinois. The Hawkeyes face the Illini in a televised game with kickoff set for 11:02 a.m. in sold out Kinnick Stadium.
Clark is the starting tight end for the defending Super Bowl Champion Indianapolis Colts.
Clark, a three-year letterman (2000-2002), was a consensus all-American with the Hawkeyes. He was named winner of the 2002 John Mackey Award as the top tight end in collegiate football. He is still 21st on Iowa’s all-time receiving charts with 1,281 yards. He was an important part of Iowa’s 2002 Big Ten championship team. He caught 81 career passes and had eight touchdowns.
Clark has been just as important to the world champion Colts as their starting tight end. He was selected as the 24th pick in the first round of the 2003 NFL draft.
Clark will accompany the Iowa captains to the center of the field for the pregame coin-flip. He will also be with the Hawkeyes on the sidelines and in the locker room before and after the game.
