Raider Nation is invited to be part of a celebration for Tom Flores this Sunday when the Silver & Black host Miami at Allegiant Stadium. The Raiders Legend and Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2021 inductee will be honored at halftime during a ceremony that will include teammates and players from Tom's legendary career with the Raiders, which spanned seven seasons as a player, eight seasons as an assistant coach and nine seasons as head coach.

Flores, who was enshrined on Sunday, August 8, will be presented with his Hall of Fame ring during the halftime gala.

Flores' induction came 33 years after coaching his last Raiders game in December 1987. He is one of only two people in NFL history to win a Super Bowl as a player, assistant coach and head coach. He was the first Hispanic starting quarterback in league history, and the first Hispanic head coach to win a Super Bowl when the Raiders took the title in 1980. Three years later, Flores led the Raiders to victory again with another Super Bowl win.
