Indianapolis Colts tight end Dallas Clark found out several months ago that his name would be part of the Big Ten annual awards.

Clark attended the awards gala Friday night at the Indiana Convention Center and still is shocked. The award for the conference's top tight end is named for the former Iowa player along with former Penn State star Ted Kwalick.

This year's award went to Drake Dunsmore of Northwestern.

"I still don't understand why I'm on here," Clark said. "There have been some great tight ends come through this conference. It's truly an honor. I'm hoping they don't go back and make a correction."

Clark enjoyed meeting several of the former Big Ten stars, including Kwalick, who was an All-American in 1967 and '68.

"I was just talking with him about how tight end was played back in that day and how it is now," Clark said. "It's an honor to be amidst all these great people. I just went around and said as many hellos as possible."
