Kenny King played so long ago the Raiders were actually good. He’s a regular guest on the card show circuit and loves it.
Here’s another reason to feel old. Former Raider running back Kenny King turns 50 this week.
King was in the same Oklahoma backfield as former Detroit Lions great Billy Sims, whom he blocked for and actually gained more yards per carry when Sims won the Heisman Trophy (1978). While King was at OU, the Sooners were 41-6-1. Then it was on to Oakland where he won a pair of Rings with the 1980s Raiders.
"It’s a lot of fun because every now and then you like to hear the roar of the crowd, mingle with the fans, the ones who saw you but never got to meet you. This is my way of doing that," he said.
