    Al Davis, the late owner of the Oakland Raiders, had a long history of shepherding trailblazers, from George Blanda and John Madden, to Tom Flores and Art Shell. Luc Mbah a Moute Jersey .Count Amy Trask in that category, too. Trask joined the Raiders as an intern in 1983 after cold calling the teams telephone switchboard and offering to work for free. The gutsy move eventually led to a full-time gig and started Trask on a path that culminated in her becoming the Raiders CEO in 1997.Trask earned the nickname The Princess of Darkness in part due to her commitment to the Raiders. And as we discussed some of the stories she shares in her new book, You Negotiate Like a Girl: Reflections on a Career in the National Football League, it became clear that much of her loyalty to the organization stems from the dynamics of working for Davis.Respecting ones convictions, even under difficult circumstancesTrask cites Davis display of a strong moral compass in the 1960s when he took a stand against segregation.She indicates that this respect for ones convictions even extended to times when she and Davis would disagree. Second chances: When they should be given ...She also has an affinity for the way Davis would give people second chances.Yet Trask does not think that getting a second chance should be an automatic benefit.... And when they should notOne of the instances where Trask does not believe a second chance was warranted was in Michael Vicks return to the league. This issue directly impacted her because, as Trask details in her book, Davis called and asked her opinion as to whether they should sign Vick to a contract. Her opposition to this was rock solid and based on a detailed look at Vicks indictment.Trask says that Davis reaction to her opposition was something she will always remember.If you dont want people to think about your gender, dont think about your genderTrask offers an interesting perspective on how to deal with potential gender resistance in the workplace.Yet she makes sure to point out that this is not a one-size-fits-all approach.Inclusive hiring practicesWhen asked if nonsports businesses should aim to use the Rooney Rule and the Al Davis approach to minority hiring practices as a blueprint to help increase diversity in their organizations, Trask makes it clear that businesses should look past the benefits of compliance and instead see the value of a more inclusive hiring model.Her future in the leagueTrask left the Raiders organization in 2013. When asked if she wants to get back into the NFL, Trask says opportunities have been offered, but not accepted.A new adventureTrask is now in her fourth season as an NFL analyst for CBS Sports Network. But she says during the transition to the media side of football, she received some much needed help from a former New York Jets/Baltimore Ravens linebacker who made the phrase Cant wait a recurring social media meme.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- After several tough losses, including an overtime heartbreaker against No. 3 Clemson, North Carolina State is now poised to go to a bowl.All they need is one more win.Matt Dayes ran for 108 yards and three touchdowns, and the NC State defense held Syracuse to 218 yards in a 35-20 victory on Saturday.The resiliency of our football team, losing four of our five games by a possession, theyve been able to stick together. Im really proud of them today, Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren said. This gets that carrot in front of their nose for the bowl opportunity. You want to feel the pleasure of your work and you cant do that by almost winning. This gives them the satisfaction of the grind and they needed that today.I feel very confident about our bowl chances, added defensive end Bradley Chubb. We have two opportunities and need just one more win.Ryan Finley was 20-of-29 for 340 yards and one touchdown for the Wolfpack (5-5, 2-4 ACC). Kelvin Harmon had 101 yards receiving and one touchdown and BraLon Cherry had seven receptions. Dayes scored on runs of 7, 20, and 13 yards.The Wolfpack defense held the Orange, 113th nationally in rushing, to just 28 yards on the ground and 190 yards passing.Syracuse (4-6, 2-4) played without sophomore quarterback Eric Dungey, who was hit in the head/shoulder area during the first quarter of a 54-0 loss to No. 3 Clemson last weekend.

Joe Johnson Jersey. Obviously, we were at a disadvantage without Eric Dungey being able to participate, said Syracuse coach Dino Babers. Before the Clemson game, I think he was ranked in the top 10 quarterbacks in the country. Obviously, we missed him a great deal out there. There wouldve been a lot of things that we couldve taken advantage of.The Orange was also without starting wide receiver Steven Ismael who dressed but not play. Ishmael has 41 receptions this season.Mahoney, a walk-on who was awarded a scholarship before the 2016 season, led the Orange to a touchdown on their first drive. He was 5-of-6 passing, including a 12-yard completion to Erv Philips on fourth down. But the Orange offense bogged down the rest of the half, managing just a 48-yard field goal by Cole Murphy.Mahoney finished 13-of-24 for 190 yards, a touchdown and interception. Amba Etta-Tawo caught three passes for 84 yards and one touchdown.THE TAKEAWAY:NC State: The Wolfpack can qualify for a bowl game by winning one of their remaining games against Miami or No. 15 North Carolina.Syracuse: With the status of Eric Dungey uncertain, the Orange will have a tough time getting to six wins with games against Florida State and at Pitt.UP NEXT:NC State: The Wolfpack returns home for a contest against Miami on Saturday.Syracuse: The Orange has its work cut out for it with a matchup against the No. 19 Florida State on Saturday.
