"Dutch" Clark's jersey

Earl "Dutch" Clark joined the Portsmouth Spartans in 1931and enjoyed two All-Pro seasons with the team.  He retired from the pro game following the 1932 season to become the head coach at the Colorado School of Mines. 

Clark rejoined his former team in 1934 - who by then had been sold and moved to Detroit, Michigan to  become the Lions.  For the next five years, Clark, from his tailback position, was the general in Detroit's famed infantry attack that in 1936 set a team rushing record that stood for 36 years.

Clark wore this jersey during his Hall of Fame career.
