Ray Ray Armstrong headed to Faulkner University

Former Miami Hurricanes defensive back Ray-Ray Armstrong (26) will be making a new college home, as he and his family decide to take their talents to the NAIA for Faulker University.

Well just a few months ago, we would have been talking about Ray Ray Armstrong the big, physical safety to be playing for the University of Miami. Attorneys for former Miami safety Ray Ray said, he and his family have dropped plans to pursue legal action against the university after he was dismissed from the football team, and Armstrong has decided he will play football at a small school this season. The school that Ray Ray decided to play for is in the NAIA, in Alabama. Ray Ray will still be kind of close to home, and will be able to come in right away and contribute. Ray Ray will get his chance at the NFL, but first he will have to have a good season with Faulkner University.

If you are wondering about Faulkner University, this is the school that had the 61 year old kicker in 2011. Yes, a 61 year old kicker,Vietnam veteran and grandfather of five became the oldest player ever to get in a college football game. Alan Moore kicked an extra point for NAIA Faulkner in its season-opener in 2011. Moore wore a square-toe shoe and kicked old-school style, not soccer style -- trends that were popular when he first played college football in the late `60s.

I cannot think of any player from Faulkner University that has ever went professional to the NFL, but it is probably a guarantee that if Ray Ray stays healthy and leaves next year, he will be if not the first, probably the most recognize able.
