When you think about Albany State football you almost have to think about the Rams' "Gold Rush" offense that was tops in the conference last season with a lot of help from all conference wide out Ronnie Childs but now with Childs gone another Ronnie looks to pick up where he left off.
Holmes Community College transfer Ronnie Tubbs will look to make an immediate impact with the Rams. Tubbs was ranked as the 15th wide receiver in the nation coming out of Yazoo City High School in Mississippi a few years ago after receiving for 875 yards and 14 touchdowns his senior year.
Tubbs has been catching the attention of the Rams' coaches all summer and will be a huge part of the Rams passing game this season. He says his choice to transfer to ASU was a rather easy one.
Tubbs said "It was the best fit for me. I like the coaching staff and everything and I saw that they were a winning program. Great players, I'm glad to have a quarterback like that. I think he's number one in the nation. I like him."
Offensive coordinator Uyl Joyner said "He's just a big play receiver. He can stretch the field both ways. East, west, north and south. Great hands, great speed. He's an all around receiver. He can jump out of the stadium and it just jumps out on film just how fast he is."
Rams open the season on September 3rd against Savannah State in Macon.
