SEC Storied - It's Time

Sep 4, 2014

On October 28, 1989, Ole Miss defensive back Chucky Mullins hit Vanderbilt running back Brad Gaines in the back and separated him from the ball. While Gaines was uninjured, Mullins suffered a broken neck on the play, leaving him a quadriplegic. But in that heartbreaking moment, a friendship was born that lasted another two years, until Mullins died of a blood clot in a Memphis hospital room, with Gaines at his side. "It's Time" chronicles the inspirational journeys of these two men brought together by tragedy.

"It's Time" (directed by Fritz Mitchell) premiered Thursday, Sept. 4, on the SEC Network.
