Aravious "Ray-Ray" Armstrong (born March 5, 1991) is an American football linebacker for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Miami Hurricanes from 2009 to July 2012. He was not selected in the 2013 NFL Draft but was signed as an undrafted free agent by the St. Louis Rams.

Early years

Armstrong attended Seminole High School in Sanford, Florida. He played both quarterback and safety. As a senior he led Seminole to the 2008 FHSAA Class 6A state championship over Teddy Bridgewater's Miami Northwestern. During that year he threw for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns, rushed for 1,144 yards with 22 touchdowns and caught three passes for 29 yards and one touchdown as a QB. As a safety he had 70 tackles, two interceptions, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

He was considered the 13th best recruit in 2009 by Rivals.com.[1]

College career

Miami Hurricanes

As a freshman with the Miami Hurricanes in 2009, Armstrong played in 10 games, recording 14 tackles. As a sophomore in 2010 Armstrong took over as a starter and has 66 tackles, three interceptions and a touchdown in 11 games.[2]

On July 18, 2012, Armstrong was dismissed from the Hurricanes football team for being dishonest during an internal investigation.[3][4][5]

Faulkner Eagles

On August 14, 2012, it was announced that Armstrong had transferred to Faulkner University and would play for the Faulkner Eagles, an NAIA team, during the 2012 season.[6] However, Armstrong was declared ineligible on September 11, 2012 due to the circumstances of his dismissal from the Miami Hurricanes. NAIA rules prohibit any athlete "who has been permanently banned in a given sport at any four-year institution."[5]
