By MAX BULTMAN
Daily Sports Writer
Known for his quick starts off
the blocks into the pool, former
Michigan swimmer Tyler Clary
couldn't have gotten a much later
jump into his most recent venture.
Clary won the gold medal in
the 200-meter backstroke at the
2012 London Olympics, fulfilling
a dream and setting an Olympic
record in the process. Shortly after
those Olympics, though, Clary
was presented an opportunity to
pursue another childhood dream -
race car driving.
The seed for Clary's pavement
dreams were planted at a young
age, ironically through his other
passion of swimming. The Clary
family often went to the Fontana
Speedway to run a merchandising
booth to fundraise for his club
team.
"Being around the cars all the
time, I knew it was something that
I wanted to do," Clary said. "I just
never really had the opportunity
until after the London Olympics."
An interview with Dave Despain
on the popular auto racing show
WindTunnel publicized Clary's
interest in racing, leading to
Benny Gordon contacting Clary
on Twitter, offering a test run in a
stock car.
Gordon had driven on the
Nationwide Series and been around

the sport a long time, but had never
met Clary prior to offering him an
introduction to the sport he had
always harbored interest in. It
must have been surprising to both
when Clary's test run placed him
just a quarter-second slower than
the racers who had competed on
the same track in Kenly, North
Carolina just hours earlier in a
ProCup race.
More impressive than that was
that it was just the second time
Clary had even driven a manual
transmission car, a significant
barrier to racing that Clary
apparently handled quite easily.
Still, a lot of other things had to
fall into place for Clary's lifelong
interest to materialize into a
buddingcareer opportunity.
"The nice thing about being
in Charlotte is that all of those
opportunities are really close,"
Clary said. "So that lessensthe time
commitment needed in order to get
out to the track and develop. My
schedule works out perfectly with
a couple of the series. For example,
the U.S. Legends Summer Shootout
Series I'm able to do because we
don't have practice Wednesday
mornings."
Moving to Charlotte, while
not solely fueled by his endeavor
to the race track, is a clear signal
of the drive Clary possesses,
willing to uproot himself from a
comfortable situation training at

Michigan to live where his passions
can intersect. When he finishes
swimming, he says, he plans to
pursue auto racing as a full-time
career.
Clary acknowledges the hurdles
that remain between where he
is now and the point he would
someday like to be - the Sprint
Cup Series. While currently
training for the 2016 Olympics in
Rio de Janeiro, he is also working
onreachingalevel ofdrivingwhere
he can earn sponsorships to drive
faster cars on more reputable tours.
But he's also embracing the fun
aspects of being a semi-pro race car
driver.
Clary reminisced about one
of his first test runs in Barstow,
California, where he and his
girlfriend, Caroline, were allowed
to take a trophy truck out for a
spin, going 100 miles per hour
through the desert. He hopes to
do something similar with friends
from his other job, the one that's
already earned him national fame
and some impressive hardware.
"There's been a lot of support
(from the swimming community)
and a lot of people that think it's
cool," he said. "One of the things I
do want to do with a couple of my
swim friends is get them together
at a track and getthem in a car with
me and see if I can't scare the crap
out of them going really fast on a
road course."

Funchess for

Clark for Bednarik

The Preseason Watch Lists
for the National College Football
Awards Association awards come
outfrom July 7 to July 18. On Mon-
day, two Michigan players made
the Maxwell Award watch list and
two more made it for the Bednarik
Award.
Senior defensive end Frank
Clark, Bednarik Award (best
defensive player): Clark has
struggled with inconsistency for
parts of his career, but he earned
All-Big Ten second-team honors
last season. He made 43 tackles
and led the team with 12 tack-
les for loss while starting all 13
games. His 4.5 sacks were sec-
ond on the team to linebacker
Cam Gordon, and his two fumble
recoveries were first.
The 6-foot-2, 270-pound
Cleveland native topped his
freshman and sophomore years
combined last season in tackles,
tackles for loss and sacks, putting
his name on the list of 76 play-
ers to watch for the nation's best
defensive player.
Fifth-year senior linebacker
Jake Ryan, Bednarik Award
(best defensive player): Ryan
also made the watch list for best
defensive player despite missing
the first five games last season
with a torn ACL he suffered last
spring. He managed to play in the
last eight games, however, start-
ing five and making 30 tackles,
4.5 for loss.
Ryan made a name for himself
as a redshirt freshman in coach
Brady Hoke's first season, play-
ing in every game and starting 11.
He then broke out in 2012 with 88
tackles, 4.5 sacks and 16 tackles
for loss, the last of which ranked
third in the Big Ten.
Fifth-year senior quarter-
back Devin Gardner, Maxwell

Award (college player of the
year): Gardner enters his sec-
ond full year as a starter with 16
starts under his belt. He started
12 games last year, missing the
Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl with
injury, and he earned All-Big
Ten honorable mention from the
media.
He passed for 2,960 yards and
21 touchdowns last season and
added 483 rushing yards and
11 more scores on the ground.
His 376 total yards and five total
touchdowns against Notre Dame
earned him Maxwell Award
Player of the Week honors, and
he set a program record with 503
passing yards against Indiana.
This year, he'll cap a career that
he started as a third-string quar-
terback in 2010 and continued as
a starting wide receiver in 2012
before assuming the starting
quarterback role late in 2012.
Junior wide receiver Devin
Funchess,MaxwellAward(col-
lege player of the year): Funch-
ess will officially move to wide
receiver this year after appearing
in every game and starting 15 at
tight end his first two seasons.
Last season, he caught 49 pass-
es for 748 yards and six touch-
downs, earning first-team All-Big
Ten honors from the media. His
748 yards were a program record
for a tight end.
This season, he figures to
step into a starting role at wide
receiver to fill a need. The Wol-
verines lose wideout Jeremy Gal-
lon (1,373 yards) from last year's
team, and the top returning
receiver is redshirt sophomore
Jehu Chesson, who caught 15
passes for 221 yards last season.
Notable upcoming watch list
announcements: July 14, Butkus
Award (nation's best lineback-
er);, July 15, Biletnikoff Award
(nation's best wide receiver); July
16, Davey O'Brien Award (nation's
best quarterback); July 18, Walter
Camp Award (nation's most out-
standingplayer).
