Description Earl H. "Dutch" Clark, (CC class of 1930) who graduated from Colorado College as a biology major, remains CC's most famous athlete. A Pueblo, Colorado native, he became the first football player from the state of Colorado to be named All-American in 1928. He is a charter member of the Intercollegiate Football Hall of Fame, Rutgers, the National Professional Football League Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame, and the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame. He was chosen as an all-pro quarterback for six consecutive years. Following a career as a professional football player (Portsmouth Spartans and Detroit Lions) and coach (Detroit Lions, Cleveland Rams, Detroit University), he later worked at the Michigan Tool and Die Company.
