AT COLORADO: 2011 (Sr.)—He played in 11 games, all on special teams, plus playing one snap on offense (final play of the game) in the last home game of his career (versus Arizona). He played 45 snaps on the field goal/point after touchdown unit on special teams. He added almost 15 pounds of muscle to his frame after the end of his junior season.
2010 (Jr.)—He saw action in all 12 games, all on special teams, as he played every snap (50) on the field goal/PAT unit. He was the co-recipient of the Joe Romig Award as selected by coaches for the most improved offensive lineman in spring practice.
2009 (Soph.)—He got in for one snap from scrimmage late during the Wyoming game, but worked his way on to the FG/PAT unit on special teams where he was a regular the last seven games of the season (27 total plays). He was a recipient of the Gold Group Commitment Award, selected by the CU coaches, which recognizes excellence with class in a variety of areas.
2008 (Fr.-RS)—He did not see any game action, but did dress for seven games. He added 10 pounds to his frame between arriving on campus and the two years he spent in Boulder.
2007 (Fr.)—Redshirted; practiced the entire fall on the offensive line and dressed for eight games including in the Independence Bowl. He joined the team as an invited walk-on for August drills.
PERSONAL—He was born October 2, 1988 in Aspen, Colo. His hobbies include playing sports and farming. A grandfather, Elmer Holmes, played tackle for Colorado during the 1936 season (at 6-2, 190; he was a teammate of CU legend Byron White).
HIGH SCHOOL—A four-year starter and letterman at offensive tackle, he recorded 24 pancake blocks as a senior. Under coach Travis Benson, Aspen was 3-6 during Clark’s senior campaign. Aspen is not known for its football, rather its winter sports particularly skiing, thus he is one of handful to go on and try football from the school collegiately. He also participated in rugby in high school, playing second row scrum, and basketball.
ACADEMICS—He is pursuing a double major in History and Sociology at Colorado and is on schedule to graduate in May 2012. He earned second-team Academic All-Big 12 Conference honors as a sophomore and junior and was an honorable mention Pac-12 All-Academic team member as a senior.
