Ronnie Mabra is Democratic member of the Georgia House of Representatives, serving since 2013. Mabra played football for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, where he was a member of the All-ACC Academic Honor Team. Mabra is also an attorney in private practice.
Ronnie has called Georgia home his entire life. He is a proud native of Fayetteville where he was a standout varsity athlete for the Fayette County High School Tigers. Despite several out-of-state opportunities, Ronnie was committed to staying in Georgia and attended the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Ronnie’s parents always stressed academics over sports. Ronnie eagerly took their counsel to heart. As a member of the All-ACC Academic Honor Team, Ronnie successfully balanced Georgia Tech’s rigorous academic requirements with the challenges that accompany playing four seasons as a strong safety. In 2000, Ronnie made the difficult decision to forgo the NFL Scouting Combine and instead set his sights on law school. Ronnie’s teammates fondly remember him traveling to away games with a defensive playbook in one hand and a law school study guide in the other. Continuing to keep his talent in state, Ronnie attended the University of Georgia School of Law.
