ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - Before family, friends, and the Cenla community, Jalen Richard was honored in a ceremony tonight that saw his number retired and a banner hung among other Peabody legends. The experience is one Richard will never forget.
"“I didn't know the feeling was going to feel like this, it's like pretty amazing man, pretty cool to look up there and obviously have all the support and family and friends and the community come in tonight,” said Richard. “But to really see the real banner, I thought about how I envisioned what it would look like, but to actually see it and know it's for real, I'm gonna be up there forever, ya know what i mean? It's crazy.”
Richard is entering his fourth season a running back for the Oakland Raiders.
