Tallahassee, FL - Since 2006, all Rattler football coaches have come to depend on the craft of one of it’s behind-the-scenes most valuable players.  William Jerrod Bennett has been responsible for logging every practice, scrimmage and game for the Rattlers for the last seven years.

Affectionately known as “Will” by all who encounter him, Bennett was recognized by his peers as the best in the FCS by the Collegiate Sports Video Association on May 16.  He was awarded the Bob Matey National Video Coordinator of the Year Award for his professionalism, engagement of new technologies and innovation.  Bennett stays on the cutting edge of technology, allowing the best possible imagery and ease of use for all of the coaches.

Bennett came to FAMU in 2006 after leaving the U.S. Army, where he was a communications specialist.  He is a native of Plant City, Fla., and held a post at Florida’s News Channel before coming to FAMU.

Bennett not only assists the football staff, but all 18 sports at Florida A&M.  He often travels with other sports to ensure that they are getting the coverage, practice footage and game recordings necessary to be successful.  Bennett had integrated the use of GoPro cameras for point-of-view photography, as well as migrating from standard definition to high definition.
