Basketball fans who want to know more about Indiana Fever rookie Caitlin Clark may do so by watching the documentary “Full Court Press,” which features former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, who is producing a behind-the-scenes look at Clark’s prep and collegiate career. Omaha Productions is a production business created by members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

In addition to exploring Clark’s on-court quest to surpass Pete Maravich as the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer, the series brings viewers behind the scenes.

On Tuesday, the legendary quarterback revealed his true feelings about Clark playing for the Fever.

“It’s awesome, and, like I said, I really enjoyed getting to know Caitlin even more. 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. I gave her all of my contacts at the airport, at St. Elmo’s… and it’s a great place for her to play, I’m looking forward to watching her,” Manning said, via WTRH.com.

Clark will make her WNBA regular season debut with the Fever on Tuesday, May 14th, against the Connecticut Sun. She already made her WNBA debut with the Indiana Fever on Friday night in a preseason game against the Dallas Wings.

Clark shined Friday on the court as she poured in 21 points with three rebounds, two assists, and two steals despite it being a losing match. The Wings won 79-76.

Next up for Clark and the Fever will be the Atlanta Dream on Friday.

Caitlin Clark Continues To Have Awkward Interactions With The Media

Clark began her professional basketball career with an awkward exchange at an Indiana Fever press conference where a reporter told her she should make her heart gesture to him while on the court.

Another round of awkwardness unfolded while talking to reporters before her game against the Dallas Wings. During the interaction, she was asked if “bae” would be at the game.

“No, he’s working,” Clark said as the rest of the group chuckled. “I’m playing solo. I better get used to it, man. I’m a pro. It’s my job.”

WNBA reporters are not used to her type of star power, but they shouldn’t have trouble behaving themselves.
