Two-Time Super Bowl Champ Comes to El Paso Tuesday
The Three Legged Monkey will host a meet and greet with Dwight Clark tomorrow, December 18 from 5-7 p.m.
Clark played for the San Francisco 49ers from 1979 to 1987. Clark was a member of two Super Bowl champion teams, but is mostly remembered for “The Catch” against the Dallas Cowboys that would decide who would play in the 1982 Super Bowl. On January 10, 1982, during the NFC playoffs, the San Francisco 49ers were trailing 27–21 in the final minute. Clark leaped and caught a six-yard pass in the back of the end zone to give the 49ers a 28–27 victory. The play has been called one of the most famous in NFL history and has been immortalized as “The Catch.”
Clark retired after eight seasons in the NFL.
Clark will be on hand to sign autographs and take pictures. There is no cover charge, but fans are asked to arrive early. There will be no reserved seating.
