Arthur Rubio needs no introduction to the GFL and nevertheless head coach Patrick Griesheimer is glad to announce the signing of the quarterback to Wiesbaden for the 2015 season. “Art has a strong arm and nerves of steel – he’s also very dangerous using his legs.” This explains the reason for this important piece to be added. “In our first game last season against the pirates, I was very surprised by this player and thought, this is exactly the type of quarterback I need for my team.”
Art Rubio played high school ball at Fillmore (California) and at Ottawa University (NAIA) where he was,also used as a wide receiver and Line Backer. Then, the 6’3 225 Rubio continued his career with the California Seminoles before he gained his first experience in the GFL with the Frankfurt Pirates last season.
“Rubio is a workhorse,” said Patrick Griesheimer, “he will be the leader, by example and his self-confidence, which we urgently need on our offense.”
In Mid-January 2015 he will join the Phantoms and is looking forward to his time in Wiesbaden. “A decisive advantage in this preparation is to get him here early with the team and getting to know the guys,” the coach explained he’s finally satisfied. And today, we say: welcome to the PHANTOMS Art !!
