Naya arrived in Oakland and headed to Raiderville to participate in a Q&A with Raiders.com’s Jeanette Thompson. She then took the field to watch her brother warm-up before the game. “So excited [to be here],” said Naya. “Always love coming here. They treat us so well and I get to bring more people every time. My dad’s here and now [Big Sean] is here, so it’s good.”

The first game Naya attended, Mychal scored his first career touchdown. Cameras caught Naya screaming with joy in the crowd. “I freaked out. I couldn’t believe that that happened and we were fortunate enough to be here to see it,” she said. “I hope it happens again.”

Her wish came true as Mychal scored a 14-yard touchdown in the 3rd quarter to bring the Raiders within 4 points of the Chiefs.

Since her younger brother joined the Silver & Black, Naya has been introduced and immersed in Raider Nation. It’s a community in which she feels comfortable. “It’s good. I feel like the Raiders fans are like Gleeks -- I feel like no matter what, they’re just so loyal and I love that.”
