Stephen Spence Clark (born August 2, 1960) is a former professional American football player who played defensive tackle and offensive guard for five seasons for the Miami Dolphins.[1] He also played on two state championship teams in high school at Skyline in Salt Lake City, which were a combined 25-1 over two years and was a five team all-American including Parade Magazine. He was also named Most Valuable Player of the state of Utah. At the University of Utah, he was named two-time All-WAC defensive tackle, Defensive Most Valuable Player of the Western Athletic Conference, and First Team All-American. He also played in the East-West Shrine Game and was named MVP of the Senior Bowl. After the Senior Bowl, he was drafted by Don Shula and the Miami Dolphins. During his second year in the NFL, he played both ways in a preseason game and Coach Shula knew he had a guy that could back up every position on the offensive and defensive line as well as long snap. He earned a starting position at right guard and played against the Fridge when the Dolphins beat the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football to help keep the undefeated 1972 Dolphins record intact. He also played on two Super Bowl teams with the Miami Dolphins and was the starting right guard before being injured. Just recently Steve was named one of the top 100 greatest players in the history of the University of Utah, actually being named ninth best of all-time.
