Donald J. Trump’s First Cunning Rise (and Fall): The Man I Knew

Jack R. O’Donnell, author, casino developer and executive, skilled equestrian, co-founder of Sabino Recovery Center in Tucson, Arizona — and former President and COO of the Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City. It was at the Trump Plaza, the number one East Coast casino and the jewel in the crown of the Trump portfolio, where O’Donnell reported directly to the man who would become the 45th President of the United States. O’Donnell later wrote Trumped!: The Inside Story of the Real Donald Trump — His Cunning Rise and Spectacular Fall, and is working on a second book about his experience working for the casino mogul, reality TV star, and our current commander in chief.  Sabino Recovery, which O’Donnell co-founded with his wife and two other partners, incorporates working with horses — an O’Donnell passion — into their various mental and emotional wellness programs.  O’Donnell will share his insights and experiences working with Donald J. Trump when he was riding high in the glitz and glamor of a vibrant 1980s Atlantic City.



Our special guest, Ottis “OJ” Anderson attended the University of Miami on a full athletic scholarship and earned a degree in Physical Education. He broke Chuck Foreman’s career rushing records at the University of Miami, becoming the first player to rush for more than 1,000 yards in the school’s history his senior year with 1,266 yards. He was named The Sporting News and the American Football Coaches First Team All-American and received the All-American honorable mentions by both AP and UPI.  The eighth selection, first-round draft pick by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1979, Anderson went on to become the first rookie running back ever to average 100 yards per game and was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player, NFL Rookie of the Year, and All-Pro. He was named All-Pro again in 1980 and 1981, and set a Cardinals team record for receptions by a running back. He led the NFL in the second half of the 1981 season by averaging 102 yards rushing. In 1983, Anderson recorded a fourth 1,000 yards rushing season and caught 54 receptions. The very next season (1984), he became the 16th player in NFL history to record 100-yard efforts in both rushing and receiving in a single game vs. the NY Giants and had a remarkable career high and team record 70 receptions for the year. The New York Football Giants traded for Anderson in October of 1986. Later that same season, he would cap the Giants 39-20 Super Bowl XXI victory over the Denver Broncos with a two yard run for the team’s final touchdown. The following season, Anderson became the Giants’ starting running back and went on to score eight rushing touchdowns including three in a single game. In 1989, he recorded his sixth 1,000-yard season, first as a Giant, and scored 14 rushing touchdowns earning him NFL Comeback Player of the Year honors by Pro Football Weekly and Football Digest. At age 33 in 1990, Anderson surpassed the 10,000-yard rushing mark making him a member of the NFL’s elite “10,000 Yard Club.” That same season, he played in all 16 games and started 13 while leading the team in rushing during the regular season and powering the team through the playoffs and the Super Bowl XXV championship game. His 102-yard rushing during the game marked the 37th 100-yard game of his career and earned him Super Bowl XXV MVP honors. He was also named to the All-Madden Team that year. At the time of his retirement, Ottis was ranked 8th on the career rushing yards list.
