FIRST REPORT 1/27

If you’ve watched or been to a Bengals game, chances are you’ve seen fans doing the Ickey Shuffle — and lately, fans have more reason than ever to celebrate

Former Bengals running back Elbert “Ickey” Woods spoke with News Center 7′s Gabrielle Enright about his days wearing the orange and black, and how he feels now that Bengals wins are putting him, and his famous dance, back in the spotlight.

Woods said he enjoys being remembered for something good.

“Everyone sees me and wants to do the shuffle and wants to take a photo,” Woods said, “it’s old school flavor with new school.”

Woods spoke about his thoughts on the Bengals season so far. He admits at the beginning of the season he didn’t think the team would make it this far.

He’s glad he was wrong and the team surprised him — he thinks they’ll keep going.

Woods was in Nashville when they beat the Titans and he’s working to get tickets to the game in Kansas City.

He predicts the Bengals will win the game 27-24, with a last minute field goal.

Woods still keeps in touch with the team he played with in 1988.

He also spends a lot of time raising awareness and money for the Jovante Woods Foundation.

The foundation was created in honor of Woods’ son Jovante, who died from an asthma attack at the age of 16.

The Bengals and Chiefs will meet in the AFC Championship Game Sunday in Kansas City, with kickoff set for 3 p.m. on WHIO-TV.
