Dallas Clark to be inducted into IHSAA Hall of Fame


DALLAS CLARK

By Phil Monson

Dallas Clark’s budding football career began when he starred for Twin River Valley High School out of Bode.
Now, 21 years after he wrapped up his career for the Thunder after the 1997 season, Clark looks back fondly on his high school days before he is to be inducted into the Iowa High School Athletic Association Football Hall of Fame.
Clark and five other players will be inducted at a ceremony at halftime of the Class 4A championship game at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls on Friday, Nov. 16.
Clark will be joined by Cedar Falls offensive lineman Matt Purdy (1989-90), Glenwood linebacker Scott Davis (1986-87), Fairfield receiver Milt Jackson (1980-81), Sioux City East center Bill Lewis (1980) and South Tama running back Mark Fetter (1970-71).
“It is one of those things you don’t expect to get a phone call that you have been selected for the Hall of Fame. I don’t know how that process goes, but to get that call made me stop and think and look back on my high school career and what that award exemplifies,” Clark said.
“I look back on my high school career and I wasn’t some elite athlete at a large high school. My career was a work in progress,” Clark said. “But it’s truly an honor.”
