About Shawntae Spencer
Former San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders cornerback Shawntae Spencer is teaming up with Wingstop to bring 15 restaurants to his hometown of Pittsburgh.
Spencer, whose favorite Wingstop flavor is Lemon Pepper, was first introduced to the wing chain while playing for the Raiders.
“It's a funny story,” he remembers. “It's tradition on travel days that the rookies have to pick up food for the team on the flight. We always got Wingstop. It was like a locker room craze. If we weren't happy with the food we were eating, we'd just send a rookie to Wingstop for wings. Then I found one near my house and started making late night runs.”
