Dwight Clarke has ALSSan Francisco 49ers legendary receiver Dwight Clark announced Sunday he has been diagnosed with ALS.

"I have ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease," Clark wrote in a statement posted on his blog. "Those words are still very hard for me to say."

The former 49ers receiver, who's most famous for his iconic game-winning touchdown -- which was later dubbed "The Catch" -- against the Dallas Cowboys in the 1981 NFC Championship Game, said his diagnosis came after visits with six neurologists and three ALS specialists.

"While I'm still trying to wrap my head around the challenge I will face with this disease over the coming years," Clark wrote, "the only thing I know is that I'm going to fight like hell and live every day to the fullest."

TVNL Comment:  Another tragic consequence of professional football.  This is very sad, and may hopefully contribute to acknowledging the dangers of consistent concussions.
