Two of Iowa football's greatest are on this year's college hall of fame ballot. OT Robert Gallery and Tight End Dallas Clark are among 80 players and 9 coaches nominated by the National Football Foundation. Voting concludes the end of June and we'll know who's in this years class the end of December.
Both Gallery and Clark were consensus All Americans from small town Iowa. Both were highly coveted 1st round Nfl draft picks, Gallery #2 over-all by the Oakland Raiders. Clark was chosen with the 24th selection by the Indianapolis Colts.
Born in Sioux Falls and growing up in Livermore in Northern, Iowa, population 380, Dallas Clark would wear his Incredible Hulk pajama's most of the day if allowed. Folks in Humboldt county had no idea then that Clark would grow into the Nfl's version of the short tempered Dr. Bruce Banner. Clark played a mad blocker and pass catcher at Iowa for a couple years and then for 11 seasons as QB Payton Manning's main target, winning a Super Bowl along the way. While Dallas Clark loved Marvel comics super hero's he settled for a Rudy Ruettiger role. Rudy was turned down three times by Notre Dame before he was allowed to walk on, Dallas Clark arrived in Iowa City in 1999 wide eyed and with out a scholarship offer but determined to work his way into a Hawkeye uniform. The rest is material that books and movies are made of. Dallas Clark joins us on this week's Fight for Iowa podcast.
