Ricky Ray (born October 22, 1979 in Happy Camp, California) is a Canadian and American football quarterback who has played in the Canadian Football League and af2, as well as spending time on a roster in the National Football League. He is most well-known for his performance with the CFL's Edmonton Eskimos.

At age 18, Ray made his debut for Shasta College in Redding, California in 1997. The 1998 season saw Ray become a first-team All-American and state player of the year for his work at quarterback.

This naturally led to appearing on a larger stage, and Ray played division one NCAA college football with Sacramento State University, and played two seasons there before turning professional. In his first year as a college starter in 1999, Ray was exceptional, with 179 of 291 passes being completed, leading to 2,422 yards and twenty touchdowns. Ray's 2000 season was a drop-off but still strong, completing 168 of 270 passes (a 62.2 completion percentage) for 13 touchdowns and six interceptions.
