The Caw: Ray Lewis Meets With Grief-Stricken Boy

Posted Nov 27, 2012

Jeffrey Lippitt was driving when he got in an accident that left his sister in a coma.


Just because Ray Lewis isn’t playing right now doesn’t mean his impact isn’t still felt.

I saw it first-hand in San Diego.

Lewis met with 16-year-old Jeffrey Lippit before Sunday’s game to give him some words of encouragement that were badly needed.

Simply put, Jeffrey’s going through his own personal nightmare right now.

He was driving his 20-year-old sister, Anne-Monique (Annie) Lippit, on a rainy Oct. 12 day in Utah when he came up on a semi-truck, which was stopped because of another accident ahead. According to the police report, he braked and his Pontiac G6 went into a spin that struck the back of the semi on the passenger side.

Jeffrey was transported to Valley View Hospital in Cedar City, Utah with minor injuries. Annie, however, was flown by Life Flight to University Medical Center Hospital in Las Vegas in critical condition. She went into a coma, which she has been in ever since.

Jeffrey’s father, James, reached out to the Ravens last week to see if Lewis would be willing to speak with his son. Lewis is Jeffrey’s favorite player and the linebacker is known for his huge heart.

Jeffrey and his father had tickets to Sunday’s game in San Diego, and James was hoping Lewis would meet with his son for just a couple minutes.

Lewis was informed of the tragedy and was immediately on board.

After breaking the Ravens team huddle, Lewis walked over to Jeffrey and his father on the sideline and instantly put his arm around the youngster. The two didn’t talk for just a couple minutes. Lewis spoke directly into Jeffrey’s ear for about five minutes before the two hugged.

It was yet another powerful moment courtesy of Lewis. And it left Jeffrey absolutely giddy.

“He said I have to be the older brother now,” Jeffrey told me. “I have to be strong for her and she’s going to come out of this.

“Hearing it from him, giving him a hug, him whispering in my ear and giving me a kiss, it was the most amazing thing ever. I really needed that.”
