FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) --The Oakland Raiders kick off the preseason schedule Friday in Arizona.
Action News sports anchor Chris Alvarez caught up with a former Fresno State Bulldog looking to make the Raiders' 53-man roster.
Kyrie Wilson, the former Bulldog is now in camp with the Raiders.
"Kyrie, how's it going in camp so far?" an Action News reporter asked.
"It's been going good, just learning a lot from all the vets out there, just running out there, just learning a lot from the coaches, learning the playbook and just doing a lot of stuff, the best way to make the team," Wilson said.
The team is led by former Bulldog quarterback Derek Carr who always looks out for his own.
"I yell Bulldogs every time he makes a play," Carr said. "We got him up there to sing and I was the only one clapping when he said he was from Fresno State. I definitely don't forget where I came from."
"Oh, it helps out a lot," Wilson said. "It's good to have a former teammate you used to play with always looking out for you making sure you are good, it's good to have Derek out there."
"How much have you learned from Khalil Mack?" the reporter asked Wilson
"Khalil Mack, man that boy is a beast," he replied. "He never gives up on plays, always going 110 percent on every down and just going, motivates me to keep pushing myself."
"What is it like to put on one of the more iconic uniforms in the league?"
"It feels good," Wilson said. "There is a lot history behind this team and you just want to do your best, not let the former players down, so you just want to give it all you got."
Wilson's first chance to show all he's got comes in a preseason game against the Cardinals Friday.
