Don Clark

After a brilliant Akron Central High football career being named to the All-City team four times and All-Ohio honors in 1954, Don Clark broke into Ohio State's lineup as a sophomore. In his very first start, he scored on runs of 38 and 35 yards against Nebraska. Clark capped his stardom as Ohio State's top backfield threat by leading the Buckeyes to an undefeated season in 1957 and a Rose Bowl victory over Oregon and was rewarded with All-American status by virtually every wire service. He followed his collegiate efforts with a great pro career in Canada as a member of the Montreal Alouettes where he was an All-Pro choice and set a league record with a 106-yard touchdown run.
