Twitter was buzzing Wednesday evening when Associated Press writer Greg Beacham tweeted out a photo of Jared Goff, starting quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams of the NFL, wearing a Florida A&M T-shirt at a press conference.
Goff, who played college football at Cal, doesn’t appear to have any immediate ties to Florida A&M, but a search through the Rams’ media guide shows the team’s physical therapist, Byron Cunningham, is a Rattler.
Cunningham, also the Rams’ assistant athletic trainer, graduated from Florida A&M with a bachelor’s in physical therapy in 1998, according to the team’s media guide. In 2010, he received the School of Allied Health Sciences Distinguished Alumni award.
He’s been with the Rams for eight years.
Goff was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft. The Rams are 3-2, and Goff has led the team’s offense, ranked fifth in the NFL, with 1,360 passing yards (seventh in the NFL), seven touchdowns and three interceptions.
FAMU’s homecoming game against North Carolina A&T is at 3 p.m. on Saturday.
