SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Along with all the fans, former NFL stars made their way to the Bay Area for Super Bowl 50.
One person who also made his way to San Francisco was one San Francisco 49ers legend–Dwight Clark. Clark is known for “The Catch,” which began the 49ers’ rise as an NFL dynasty in the 1980s.
KRON’s Dan Kerman talked with the former 49er great on Friday evening.
Clark was at the Dignity Health Tent signing autographs and reminiscing about the big catch.
“My greatest…fondest memory was running off the field after the catch to my teammates and coaches jumping up and down on the sideline because we were going to the Super Bowl,” Clark said. “That’s what I remember more than anything about that play.”
Clark said he is thrilled Super Bowl 50 is showcasing the city. Clark, who grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, said he thinks the Panthers are going to win the big game because “they’re on a roll.”
