HBCU Gameday Podcast: Three-On-Three with The RAC Boys

Three members of FAMU’s legendary RAC Boys give us the inside scoop on their 1998 season.

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.”

    This is an outstanding movie on the GCO and the RAC boys. The I remember FAMU’S game against the Leathernecks, how the watered down the football field before the game. The head coach for Western Illinois admitted this was done to slow down the Rattlers. This was just the beginning of the “home cooking” for FAMU. This flavor of the GCO with Bonner at the helm was my favorite!
