NBC TODAY: Pounceys gave Rainey a chance

On Friday, NBC’s TODAY aired a video package highlighting former Florida Gators running back Chris Rainey and how the family of Maurkice and Mike Pouncey took him in as a youngster and made him a part of the clan. All three are now playing in the NFL, of course, with Rainey and Maurkice both members of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Mike playing for the Miami Dolphins.

“We’re brothers, blood brothers, man. Nothing will ever change that,” Rainey said.

    Great story. Many thanks to the Pouncey family for their guidance and dedication to three wonderfully gifted young men. Enjoyed them as Gators and now in the NFL.
