San Francisco 49ers Dwight Clark Day
The San Francisco 49ers have announced their game themes for all 10 home games during the 2017 season. On Oct. 22 against the Cowboys, the annual cancer awareness day will be combined with Dwight Clark Day. The game will serve as an opportunity to honor the former 49ers wide receiver and raise awareness for ALS. It will be fitting to have Dallas in town as “The Catch” was against the Cowboys back in the 1981 NFC Championship Game. Clark, of course, holds a special place in Niners’ lore for “The Catch” against Dallas in the 1982 NFC Championship game. Clark, who announced he had been diagnosed with ALS in March, is expected to attend and there will be halftime festivities honoring him and 35 other members of the Super Bowl XVI champions. Clark and Joe Montana are also expected to address the crowd. All fans attending will receive a Dwight Clark t-shirt.
