Meet Yonka Clark, wife of retired NFL star turned ESPN analyst Ryan Clark.
Ryan and Yonka have known each other for almost 20 years, but it surely wasn’t love at first sight. They met in high school at a picnic/graduation party for one of her cousins. At the party, the two met, but the sparks did not fly until Yonka ended up going to college at LSU a year later, where Clark was already a star football player. While in college, Ryan took Yonka under his wing. The two were always together, and finally Ryan showed his romantic side. Every since that moment, the couple got engaged and soon after became husband and wife. The couple has three amazing and beautiful children together: Jaden, 11, Jordan, 8, and Loghan, 5.
Ryan Ckark is a retired NFL saftey who was signed by the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2002. Clark has also played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and for the Washington Redskins. On January 25, 2012, Clark was named to his first career Pro Bowl. On February 18, 2015, Clark officially announced his retirement from the NFL. Io March 2015 Clark was signed by ESPN as a commentator.
