Daryll Clark Tests Talents in Calgary

After being released by the Washington Redskins in May, former Penn State quarterback Daryll Clark has hopped back on the horse to join the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League (CFL). Penn State’s career leader in touchdown passes could not earn a spot on the roster loaded with veteran quarterbacks like Donavon McNabb and Rex Grossman. Instead, Clark will head north to America’s hat and team up with Calgary head coach and fellow Penn State alumnus John Hufnagel.

Hufnagel was a former quarterback for the Nittany Lions as well. He earned All-American status in 1972 and has coached the Stampeders since the 2008 season when he led them to a Grey Cup victory (the CFL’s equivalent to the Lombardi Trophy).

Clark hopes to make an impact this season, but the CFL is entering its fourth week of the season, so the Youngstown, Ohio native will have to play catch up.

No matter how far behind, Clark should see more snaps in the CFL than he would on an NFL roster. Many believe this is a perfect fit for Clark to further develop his skills. The former captain has the potential to be a successful quarterback, given his size and pure athletic ability, but only experience will expose it. With the right coaching and a supporting cast, this may be the opportunity he has been waiting for.
