Felicity De Jager is best known for being the wife of retired American football quarterback Randall Cunningham, who played in the National Football League for 16 seasons.
On April 6, 1967, she was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. Felicity is a former ballet dancer and Christian leader. She has been married to Randall Cunningham for about 30 years. They got married in 1993 and have three kids: Randall Cunningham II, Vashti Cunningham, and Christian Cunningham.
Born in the United States on March 27, 1963, Randall Wade Cunningham Sr. played professional football in the past. He is famous for his time with the Minnesota Vikings but spent the majority of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles. Cunningham, a four-time Pro Bowler, is third in quarterback rushing yards.
Cunningham was chosen by the Eagles in the second round of the 1985 NFL Draft after receiving first-team All-American recognition at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He played for them for his first 11 seasons. After the 1995 season, Cunningham announced his retirement, but he eventually came back and signed with the Vikings. Although the Vikings were defeated in the NFC Championship Game, 1998 was the best season of his career as he helped the team set the NFL record for most points scored in a regular season. Due to a deterioration in performance, Cunningham lost his starting spot in the 1999 season and was later let go. He served as a backup for the Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens in his final two seasons.
After his final and second retirement, Cunningham underwent ordination as a Protestant minister and worked as the Las Vegas Raiders’ team chaplain from 2020 to 2022. In 2016, he was admitted to the College Football Hall of Fame.
In 1963, Cunningham was born in Santa Barbara, California. Sam, his elder brother, would go on to play for the NFL in the future. He attended Santa Barbara High School, where he graduated in 1981. He guided his team to a League championship and the CIF Finals as a senior. His older brother Frank, the state champion in the shot put, also competed in track and field at SBHS in the high jump.
Later, he enrolled at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). He was selected for the 1983 and 1984 College Football All-America Team as a punter. His senior year, 1984, saw him lead the UNLV Rebels to an 11-2 record, which remains the school’s only 10-win campaign in history. However, this record was later changed to 0-13 after it was discovered that numerous players were ineligible.
Cunningham became Silverado High School’s head coach in December 2014. He and his staff improved the football program’s record from a previous mark of 3-7 to one of 7-4 in his first season in charge. The team won its first playoff triumph since 2007. Two National All-Americans that were selected to compete in the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl games were coached by him.
