On Monday afternoon, former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Dwight Clark passed away at his home in Montana, he was 61 years old.

Clark was battling amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) since September 2015.

Clark is best remembered for his iconic game winning touchdown in the 1981 NFC Championshp game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Dubbed “The Catch”, the score put the 49ers in their first of four Super Bowls during the decade.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who had a few personal connections to Clark while growing up in the Bay Area of California, shared a lengthy goodbye message over Instagram.
