There’s a lot of expectations about how Caitlin Clark’s legacy will go as soon as her WNBA career begins with the Indiana Fever.

Clark’s entrance into the WNBA created a huge buzz in Indianapolis much like Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck did when they joined the Indianapolis Colts. She finished her collegiate career at Iowa as the all-time leading scorer.

With the regular season less than a week away, the spotlight on Clark is shining ever brighter.

Manning’s Omaha Productions produced “Full Court Press” – a docuseries that follows Clark and other women’s college basketball stars through the 2023-24 season. Manning had nothing but high praise for the former Hawkeyes star.

“It’s awesome and, like I said, I really enjoyed getting to know Caitlin even more,” Manning said on the carpet before the premiere on Sunday night. “Throughout this series she was a guest on our show, the Monday night show, last year. She’s a Chiefs fan – I forgive her for that – but she said she did grow up kind of watching me play and she’s going to love Indianapolis.
