Clark will miss teammates off the field

Posted by Teresa Varley on May 31, 2012 – 3:44 pm

Safety Ryan Clark has seen teammates come and go, with others stepping in to pick up the slack on the field. Clark knows the same will be the case on the field this year after the team lost James Farrior, Aaron Smith and Will Gay this offseason.

“As far as football, it’s going to roll on,” said Clark. “This organization won six Super Bowls for a reason. They know how to get the right people in the right position and allow them to play football. As far as the leadership I think everyone is doing what they have been doing all along and the leadership process happens naturally.”

But it’s off the field where he will miss guys who were more than teammates, they were friends.

“It’s the off the field stuff and the behind the scenes things that you miss the most,” said Clark. “James Farrior was the guy with the remote every morning when we had a break. He is the guy that gave the speech after we had a prayer. Aaron always said the same thing when we broke the huddle. You miss those things. Will Gay danced in the circle before we started the game. It’s the little things like that that hit you every now and then.”

    I don’t care where these guys are Clark, Farrior, Smith, Gay, or HInes, they are and always will be the best at what they do! I have been a steelers fan as long as I have been alive 62 years, all of them are true professionals and that is why they are 6 time champions. I have never missed a game since 1960 only when I was in Vietnam I missed from 1969 to 1971 but I still listened when I could. My family would fill me in, this was and is an important thing in my household. There will never be another Dynasty to match this one.

    I pray for the safety of all of you and your success in the future, Ryan, Aron,James, William, HInes, no matter where you are you will always be a steeler to me!!

    HuRa, lets make it 7!!
