Several former players and celebrities have had the honor of lighting the torch at O.co Coliseum in memory of, and tribute to, Al Davis since its inception in 2011. This tradition began prior to the Raiders victory over the Cleveland Browns in 2011, the first home game after the death of Mr. Davis.
The torch serves as a reminder that, "the fire that burns brightest in the Raider organization is the will to win." Mr. Davis would have been 86 this Saturday.
