Amy Trask began working for her favorite football team, the Oakland Raiders, as an intern in the legal department in 1983 while attending law school. She later landed a full-time job with the Raiders, working her way up to CEO in 1997, a first for a woman in the NFL. Trask earned the nickname "The Princess of Darkness" in part due to her commitment to the team. She left the organization in May 2013 after 30 years.
