Michigan State reposted some videos on Jimmy Raye’s career to go with the NFL 360 documentary it has produced on his pioneering career as a Black quarterback and Black college and NFL coach.
Michigan State inducted Raye into the school’s Hall of Fame in 2018. He joined fellow Underground Railroad teammates Bubba Smith, George Webster, Gene Washington and Clinton Jones. Sherman Lewis, a 1963 All-American halfback who finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting, was Daugherty’s first Underground Railroad All-American pick.
Daugherty also launched the Michigan State coaching careers of Lewis (1969) and Raye (1972) that continued into the NFL.
