This past Sunday, Raiders Legend Art Thoms was afforded the opportunity to light the torch in honor of Al Davis. Thoms was selected in the first round of the 1969 NFL Draft out of Syracuse. He played in 87 games with 68 starts for the Raiders. He also recorded two interceptions and six fumble recoveries.
Raiders Radio sideline reporter Lincoln Kennedy spoke with Thoms during the first quarter with the Raiders ahead 10-3. The Raiders went on to win 37-33.
