Reporter tells story about John Clayton

On Twitter, Ryan Wood, author of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, shared a story about meeting John Clayton.

“When I was an intern at The Charlotte Observer in 2010 and dreamed of making an NFL beat, I spent OTA training on the Carolina Panthers sidelines,” Wood wrote.

“I was lucky enough to stand next to John Clayton that day. Of course I knew who John Clayton was. respected him. Even worshiped him. He embodied everything I had hoped for as an NFL reporter.

“I was nervous, but I had to introduce myself. I didn’t expect him to tell me the time of day. Instead, he treated a college intern like a colleague. He was generous with advice and tips on how to grow and advance in this business as a reporter.

“Four years later in Seattle, before my first game with the Packers, I saw a familiar face walking down the press line. It was John Clayton who shook hands with other reporters before kick-off. When he came to me, I told him about the Panthers practice. He smiled, congratulated me.”
