Nicknamed “The Ghost” because of both his speed on the field and his last name, Dave Casper, was an All-American receiver for Notre Dame, helping the Fighting Irish to a National Championship in 1973. In 1974, The Ghost was selected in the second round of the NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders. Although he only caught a total of nine passes in his first two seasons with the raiders, he went on to become a top 10 receiver the next season and one of the Raiders’ go-to offensive weapons.
During his career, Casper had a total of 378 receptions, racking up 5,216 yards and 52 touchdowns. There was a Dave Casper appearance in five pro bowls as well as the NFL’s 1970s All-Decade Team.
**Dave Casper Speaker**
Although football is the obvious Dave Casper speaker topic, the former Pro-Bowler currently works as a financial consultant and is a great asset for people seeking a speaker who can talk both sports and business.
**Dave Casper Appearance**
There was a Dave Casper appearance in two famous NFL plays: “Ghost to the Post” when Casper made an over-the-head catch for 42 yards and a game-tying field goal that would eventually lead to a Raiders victory; and “The Holy Roller” when Casper picked up a rolling fumble and ran it in in the last seconds of a game versus the Chargers.
**Dave Casper Endorsement**
2002 brought the highest Dave Casper endorsement possible as a football player – he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
