Piper FB Recruit Julian Stubbs Gets Head Start On 2012 Season

When Julian Stubbs reports to Hamline's football training camp in August, he will already have one 2012 interception under his belt. The Rossville, GA native came up with a nifty takeaway on the first play of the annual Tennessee-Georgia All-Star Game June 9 in Chattanooga. Stubbs, who is projected as a defensive back for the Pipers, was a terror in 2011 for Ridgeland High School, recording 110 tackles, including six for loss. He also had a pair of interceptions and two fumble recoveries for the Panthers, who went 6-6 in 2011.

Stubbs is one of two future Pipers who will see summer all-star action prior to heading to training camp in August. Matthew Wildes, a standout defensive lineman from Mounds View High School, will be playing in the Minnesota High School All-Star game in St. Cloud later in June.
