Gary Clark Gets Ring Of Fame Sunday

Im not sure if I missed this post on here somewhere or if it fell through, but I think its pretty awesome. Heres the story:

Redskins great Gary Clark will be inducted into the Redskins Ring of Fame at FedExField at halftime of Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions.
Clark will also be acknowledged on the field at pre-game, as part of the franchise's 75th anniversary celebration. The Redskins will honor one of the team's legends prior to each game this season.

Regarding the Ring of Fame induction, Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder said: "Gary is a well-deserved addition to the Ring of Fame. A Redskin to the core, he has displayed intelligence, toughness, integrity and a winning attitude. That's something we all applaud."

Clark is still remembered as a legendary part of the original Joe Gibbs era. In addition to his on-field accomplishments, Clark was generally considered the most spirited of "The Posse," as the successful trio of wide receivers that included Art Monk and Ricky Sanders was known.

Clark, a wide receiver, began his professional career with the USFL's Jacksonville Bulls in 1984. Later that year, he was drafted in the second round (55th overall) by the Redskins in the USFL Supplemental Draft.

During his first season with the Redskins in 1985, Clark finished with 72 catches for 926 yards and five touchdowns despite starting just 10 games.

In his second year as a Redskin, he earned his first of four trips to the Pro Bowl (1986, '87, '90 and '91). He was an integral part of the winning Super Bowl XXII and Super Bowl XXVI with the Redskins.

Clark played eight of his 11 seasons with the Redskins, finishing his career with 699 receptions for 10,856 yards and 65 touchdowns. Clark also had 27 100-yard games as a Redskin.

After eight seasons with the Redskins, Clark went on the Phoenix Cardinals for the 1993 season. As a Cardinal in 1994, he became the first NFL receiver to catch 50 or more passes in the first 10 seasons of his career.

He retired from the NFL after spending the 1995 season with the Miami Dolphins.

Clark remains active in the Washington, D.C., area community. An entrepreneur, he has also worked in local media, most recently with WUSA-TV 9 in Washington. He also stays involved with the Washington Redskins Alumni Association.

Gary deserves to be in the HOF along with my man, Mr. Monk.

Re: Gary Clark Gets Ring Of Fame Sunday

Does anyone have that link to the "We Are The Redskins" video they made in 86 with Gary Clark and his dance moves? That would be funny to post on here now.

Re: Gary Clark Gets Ring Of Fame Sunday

about time surprise that little danny would give a ring to a skin that hasnt played for him. Since we dont have any superbowl banners or divison champs before he own the team.
