Clark in year three with Ravens

Published 9:57 pm Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Suffolk native Chuck Clark is headed into his third NFL season with the Baltimore Ravens. Since being drafted by the team in 2017, the defensive back has found ways to step up his game each season.

During the 2018-2019 season, Clark helped the Baltimore Ravens reach the playoffs. He finished the season with 18 tackles and his first regular-season interception. For the first time in his career, Clark even started a couple of games for the Ravens, which showed his progression as a player. His head coach, John Harbaugh, has been on record saying how confident the Ravens are in Clark as a player and his ability to step up anytime they need him to do so.

Whether he is starting or getting significant time as a reserve, the Ravens believe Clark is a key part of their talented defense.

The 2019-2020 preseason has already started for the NFL, and through one game Clark has a tackle and a pass deflection. During the preseason last year, Clark was able to show his growth from year one to year two. He tied for the league lead in interceptions in the preseason season last year.

The Baltimore Ravens finished as one of the best five defenses in the league statistically last year, and Clark was able to be a significant contributor in that as he filled in for injured players.

Clark will once again be in a reserve role as a defensive back for the Baltimore Ravens and will also be a valuable contributor on special teams. During training camp, spectators have been impressed with Clark’s intelligence on the field.

In his time at King’s Fork High School, Clark was a standout defensive back. He was ranked among the top 50 players in the state as a senior and among the top 150 of the East Coast region. For the Bulldogs, he was also an All-District and All-Region selection. He then went on to college at Virginia Tech, where he starred all four years for the Hokies.
