Tacoma News Tribune tribute, continued
Clayton’s biggest strength as a reporter was his wide network of sources, Zeeck told the Tribune.
“Impeccable, in every nook and cranny of the NFL. His ability to engender trust and respect was unmatched,” Zeeck said.
“That’s what got him the great stories, ahead of everybody else.
“Those phone calls, regularly, from the top coaches and general managers in the league really impressed me,” Zeeck continued.
“That just doesn’t happen with any but the very best reporters in any subject.”
