Ray Lewis To Be Honored By Baltimore Ravens
By Allen Kim
The Baltimore Ravens will be honoring Ray Lewis by adding him to their Ring of Honor. The event will take place at M&T Bank Stadium during halftime on Sept. 22, the day that former teammate Ed Reed returns to play against the Ravens with the Houston Texans for the first time in his career.
The 38-year-old retired linebacker will be joining former owner Art Modell, and he'll become the sixth player from the Baltimore Ravens to join their Ring of Honor. The other inducted players from the Ravens are Jamal Lewis, Matt Stover, Jonathan Ogden, Peter Boulware and Michael McCrary. Lewis will also be joining members from the Baltimore Colts who were inducted back in 2002: Johnny Unitas, Raymond Berry, Lenny Moore, Art Donovan, Gino Marchetti, John Mackey, Jim Parker and Ted Hendricks.
Lewis, a two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, spent all 17 years of his storied career with the Ravens. During that 17-year span, Lewis was selected to 13 Pro Bowls and was named first-team All-Pro seven times. He helped the team win two Super Bowls, with the second coming back in February in the final year of his career.
