Raider Make a WishThe Oakland Raiders granted the wish of a young man who’s only wish was to play football with his favorite team. 16 year old Frank Casadio suffers from chronic kidney disease, which makes just playing outside a victory on most days. However, when he and his family were approached by the Make-A-Wish Foundation and offered an opportunity to hang out with the Raiders players and get some autographs he jumped at the opportunity.

When he arrived at the facility he was met by Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie who presented Casadio with a ceremonial contract and his very own authentic Raiders game jersey. After heading to the equipment room to prepare for practice he met head coach Dennis Allen, and was joined by star players Charles Woodson and Jacoby Ford as he took the field. During practice he participated in drills and even broke down the huddle at the end of practice with by saying “get to the playoffs!” in unison with the rest of the team.

After practice he hung out with the Raiders players, got autographs and memorabilia, and took a tour of the Raiders practice facility and stadium. “I’m a big Raiders fan and this only happens once in a lifetime,” said Castodio. “I got to practice with them and got to see the weight room and the training room. I played football since I was little until my freshman year in high school. When I found out I had the disease, I stopped playing football. Next year I’m going to try to play again.”
