Ken Clark, one of the top all-time rushers at Nebraska who went on to play for the Indianapolis Colts, has died. He was 46.
His cousin, Stephanie Clark of Omaha, confirmed Clark's death. She said he died of a heart attack in Minneapolis on Saturday.
Clark was the first Husker scholarship football player from Omaha Bryan, where he was Class A all-state as a junior and All-Metro second team in an injury-limited senior year.
At Nebraska, Clark was All-Big Eight in 1988 and 1989, rushing for 1,497 and 1,196 yards, respectively. He averaged 6.1 yards and scored 29 touchdowns. His 3,037 yards are seventh on the Huskers' career rushing list. In 1988, he ran for 256 yards and three touchdowns in a win over Heisman Trophy winner Barry Sanders and Oklahoma State.
He played three seasons for the Colts, who picked him in the eighth round of the 1990 NFL draft.
