Five Raiders players and legends you’d want to be quarantined with
3. Amy Trask
Amy Trask was neither a Raiders player or coach but she spent more than 20 years as a member of the organization, 15 of which as the CEO. Her career with the Raiders spanned several years in Los Angeles, the move back to Oakland in 1995, the first Gruden era, and the struggles of the 2000s.
She has seen it all when it comes to Raiders, from the peaks of winning the AFC and being a Super Bowl contender, to the valleys of being among the worst teams in the league.
The most intriguing aspect is that Trask’s position as CEO meant that she spent much of her Raiders career as Al Davis’s right-hand woman so she has the inside scoop on all of the moves he made over that span. We could probably spend the first week just talking about the Jon Gruden era, the Tuck Rule game, and the collapse in the Super Bowl before we got to all the other craziness before Al Davis passed away.
Aside from her insider knowledge of the Raiders for more than 20 years, Amy Trask seems like a lovely person. Her social media persona is positive, empathetic, and is all about spreading joy on a platform that’s notoriously negative. We could all use a little positivity in these trying times and we know Amy has plenty of that to spread around.
