Bo Jackson, the ultimate two-sport star, seamlessly divided his time between the Raiders and Major League Baseball’s Kansas City Royals.
Even to this day, Bo remains cherished by Raiders fans across the board, and a fortunate few recently had the opportunity to meet the legend. Bo Jackson warmly greeted several hundred fans at Flanker Kitchen + Sports Bar in Mandalay Bay, located just steps away from the walkway to Allegiant Stadium.
The retired two-sport star extended a warm welcome to The Black Hole fan base courtesy of The League of Bandits. During the event, he graciously signed helmets, jerseys, photos, and other fan merchandise. Charles Woodson also presented him with a special gift, his personalized Woodson Whiskey, the official bourbon of the Las Vegas Raiders.
Bo’s impact in the NFL includes playing in 38 games with 23 starts, amassing 2,782 yards with 16 TDs, and catching 40 passes for 352 yards and 2 scores. Notably, he holds records for two of the longest runs in team history, achieving 92 yards in 1989 and 91 yards in 1987.
His remarkable 221-yard rushing performance against Seattle in 1987 stands as the second-best in team history. Unfortunately, his career concluded with a hip injury sustained during the 1990 playoffs.
Bo Jackson is widely regarded as one of the greatest athletes to have ever lived.
