The former Omaha Bryan star died in Indianapolis on Saturday

Ken Clark, the former Nebraska I-Back who is seventh on Nebraska's career rushing list, has passed on.

Clark, 46, was found dead on Saturday in Minneapolis, according to his cousin Stephanie Clark of Omaha.

Clark, who happened to be the first ever recruit to Nebraska from Omaha Bryan High School, was a two time all Big 8 conference selection in 1988 and 1989, and was chosen by the Indianapolis Colts in the 8th round of the 1990 NFL Draft, where he played in 34 games from 1990-1992.

One of the main highlights of Clark's career (#32 above) was his day vs. Oklahoma State as he went toe to toe against Heisman Winner and NFL Hall of Famer Barry Sanders on October 15th. Clark rushed for 256 yards and three touchdowns as the Cornhuskers beat the Cowboys 63-42 in Lincoln.

Clark's 3 year NFL career came to an apex in 1991, where he had a combined 661 yards from scrimmage.
