Last month we noted that the son of Oakland Raiders general manager, Reggie McKenzie, is a talented young defensive lineman in high school. But he is not the only high school talent who has ties to the Raiders. As the team works with the son of one former Raiders great in undrafted free agent George Atkinson III, the son of another, Tyrone Wheatley Jr. is making a name for himself as a high school star. For those who do not remember, Tyrone Wheatley was part of the running back group along with Charlie Garner and Napolean Kaufman, that former head coach Jon Gruden found so much success with. Whealtey is not the running back coach for the Buffalo Bills. Now, Wheatley’s son is finding success of his own as a top ten rated tight end coming out of high school. According to reports, he is currently deciding between USC, UCLA, Alabama, Miami and Michigan (where his father went). It is always exciting to see the kids of former Raiders players finding success and continuing the Raiders bloodline in football.
