I had the best day of my life on Friday! I had the honor of being allowed to go to the Raiders Training Camp in Napa. I was nervous at first but everyone in the Raiders organization is so cool and they made me feel like I was a Raider V.I.P. When I first got there Rosie, a member of the Raiders staff, showed me the media room and how to read the press release. Then we took the field. I couldn't believe the speed and size of the Raiders. We watched them work on plays and they were hitting seriously hard.
After their scrimmage I got to interview Darren McFadden, the best RB in the NFL! McFadden and the rest of the Raiders signed my football. Then Jeannette Thompson from Behind the Shield interviewed me. She’s one of my favorite reporters, so I was very happy to do it.
Next they took me over to a live press conference with Hue Jackson. I asked him a few questions and he was so funny and cool. Coach Jackson talked to me as if we were father and son, he has great wisdom. Hue's the greatest coach of all time! Yes, better than Madden, you'll see. His players and coaches really like Hue and work hard for him.
Make sure to check out and watch my NFL Rush Kid Reporter interview and 8-26-11 press conference with Coach Hue Jackson. Lastly, I want to thank, Rosie, Tony, Michael, Bradley and Kim for making this all possible.
