At HBCU Gameday we strive to do what others can’t, and on Monday night we pulled it off by going 3-on-3 with some of Florida A&M’s famed “RAC Boys.”
For those who don’t know the RAC (Run After Catch) Boys was the nick-name for FAMU’s receiving crew who went four-and-five deep and spanned several years and quarterbacks in head coach Billy Joe’s famed “Gulf Coast Offense. They play a prominent role in Wali Pitt’s upcoming film “The Mad Bomber and The RAC Boys.”
After months of watching them on film, the Gameday Crew got a chance to talk with three members of the crew: Jacquay Nunnally, Cainon Lamb and Demetrius Bendross. What followed was an hour-long conversation filled with memories, laughs and more.
Some of the highlights include:
6:33 Nunnally explaines how he almost ended up at Florida State
14:40 How the RAC Boys got their name
21:40 Breaking down the offense
25:30 How Bonner became The GUY
46:10 Favorite games of 1998
51:40 Rivalry vs. Southern and playing with the band
We hope you enjoy the podcast and be sure to check out the film “The Original Gulf Coast Offense: The Mad Bomber and The RAC Boys” on Roku and HBCUGameday.com.
