The San Francisco 49ers host the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7, and naturally, they have chosen this day to honor legendary wide receiver Dwight Clark. The organization is holding “Dwight Clark Day” with a sizable chunk of the 1981 squad on hand to honor their teammate.
There will be a ceremony at halftime, which will include Joe Montana speaking. It will also include a video tribute to The Catch. The team released some of the video, which you can watch above. It is narrated by Vin Scully, who had the iconic call of the play. It features Dwight Clark, Joe Montana, Eddie DeBartolo, and Sports Illustrated photographer Walter Iooss Jr. offering thoughts on the play and events of the day.
The 49ers will be live-streaming the halftime ceremony, so we’ll make sure and have a thread open for that, with their Facebook Live stream embedded. It should be a very emotional halftime ceremony.
