  • In 2010, when the Packers captured the Lombardi Trophy, became the first player in NFL annals with an interception touchdown in five straight seasons.
  • Two weeks before that Super Bowl XLV title, inspired his team with a passionate locker-room speech in which he implored Green Bay to operate with one mind, one purpose, one heartbeat and one goal. Concluded the speech explaining that if President Obama would not come watch the Super Bowl, the Packers would go see him, then broke the huddle with “White House.”
  • The 1998 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, became the first Raiders defensive back to start every game in his rookie season since Jack Tatum in 1971.
  • In 1997, became the first predominantly defensive player to win the Heisman Trophy. Is one of nine Heisman winners to wear the Silver and Black. Moved into the starting lineup in his second game as a true freshman at Michigan, in 1995.
  • During a remarkable football life, has played in two Super Bowls, four conference championship games, 11 other playoff contests, three Michigan-Ohio State games and three college bowls, including the 1998 Rose Bowl to solidify an Associated Press national championship.

  • Made a $2 million donation to the University of Michigan’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and Women’s Hospital, announced on Thanksgiving Day in 2009.
  • Owns TwentyFour, a wine label that parallels the story of his life; leasing exclusive vineyards in the Napa Valley, a short distance from the Raiders’ training-camp headquarters.
