Play Like a Raven Football Clinics – June 2017

During the week of June 12, more than 1,000 children flocked to four Maryland cities to learn what it takes to "Play Like A Raven."

Former Ravens players joined local high school student-athletes and coaches to train rookie and veteran participants ages 5-15 on passing, catching, running, throwing, blocking, tackling and much more at each stop of the annual Play Like A Raven Football Clinics, presented by Under Armour!

Combining for over 55 sacks when dawning the purple and black in Baltimore, LBs Jarret Johnson and Adalius Thomas kicked off the clinics at Annapolis High School before taking their talents to Frederick County and showing the youngsters at Urbana High School how to rush the passer. Wednesday's stop returned close to home at Meadowood Regional Park in Baltimore County with appearances from two new Ravens legends – LB Brad Jackson and Ravens Ring of Honor RB Jamal Lewis. Crossing the Bay Bridge into Centreville to conclude the clinic caravan, the Super Bowl XXXV Champions coached up the youth at Queen Anne's County High School on June 15.

While the hard work was being put in by the participants on the field, family and friends off the field were living it up as they got to meet Ravens Cheerleaders and mascot Poe, jump around on Ravens inflatables, get autographs from the Ravens alumni players, grab collectible Ravens giveaways and win raffles for autographed memorabilia from Ravens players.

All participants left each clinic with a t-shirt provided by Under Armour and instruction on how to raise their game for the upcoming season, and everyone left excited for the upcoming Ravens season that is only a few months away!

Ravens 7-on-7 Football Tournament – June 2017

For the seventh consecutive year, the Ravens 7-on-7 Football Tournament, presented by Under Armour, kicked off in early June and served as a summer primer for 72 high school aged teams from around the area as they prepare for the upcoming fall season.

With regional tournaments established on the Eastern Shore, in Baltimore and in Western Maryland, teams did not have to travel too far to find great competition and a fun atmosphere to play in.

At the opening tournament of the year, eight teams descended upon Snow Hill High School on June 3 where they were greeted by former Ravens FB Vonta Leach and OL Edwin Mulitalo. Squaring off with Cambridge-South Dorchester in the finals, Chesapeake-Anne Arundel emerged victorious to secure the first championship medals of the summer.

The next day, St. Paul's School lined eight fields for 32 teams to play on. Divided into two brackets of 16, Long Reach and Smyrna each finished the day a perfect 4-0 to claim tournament titles and medals of their own. Surprising all participants during the day, Ravens Ring of Honor S Ed Reed visited the school, and the 9-time Pro Bowler meet individually with each team in the tournament to impart both football knowledge and life lessons on the student-athletes.

On June 11, the tournament came to a close in Frederick County when 32 more teams competed at Tuscarora High School. After all the teams received their Under Armour gear to play in, another Raven made an appearance to hang out with the high schoolers – DT Brandon Williams. Taking photos with each team, the 6'1" 340 pounder made even the biggest participant look miniature. On the field, Linganore and the home team, Tuscarora, each won their respective brackets to pick-up the last championship awards of the year.

NFL FLAG Championships – January 2017

Each year, the top flag football teams across the country travel to the NFL FLAG Championships to battle for the title of national champion. And this year, the Ravens had a team in the mix as the 13-14 Frederick Ravens boys squad was part of the 40-team field vying for the championship at the Pro Bowl in Orlando, Fl. January 27-30.

Gaining entry as the Ravens at-large selection, the squad was selected at random through participation in the Ravens "Team on the RISE" program.

Flying to the Sunshine State and staying at a Walt Disney World resort, the Ravens competed in three games of "pool play" on Friday, but were ultimately eliminated from tournament contention after a tight loss in the "knockout stage" the following day. Each member of the squad "Played Like a Raven" all weekend long – playing with courage, passion and pride.

Before leaving Maryland for the tournament, the team visited the Ravens Under Armour Performance Center to tour the facility, had a surprise visit from Ravens mascot, Poe, and received a good luck letter from Ravens coach John Harbaugh and Ravens players QB Joe Flacco, LB C.J. Mosley, LB Zachary Orr, K Justin Tucker and RB Terrance West.

The team did not just fly to Florida to play football though, they received the full Pro Bowl treatment while they were there – receiving gloves and custom painted and personalized Under Armour cleats (featuring their last name and Ravens logos) from the Ravens, meet and greets with Pro Bowl players (including Ravens S Eric Weddle) and passes to ride the attractions at Hollywood Studios. And to top it off, the entire squad was on the field during the pregame festivities at the Pro Bowl to hold the American flag during the National Anthem!

Congratulations to the 13-14 Frederick Ravens boys team for representing the Ravens at the 2017 NFL FLAG Championships!

Ravens RISE "Team Mom of the Year" – January 2017

Team Moms are the lifeblood of youth football squads. They compile team rosters, handle email communications with parents, oversee concession stand sales, coordinate special events, manage uniform distributions, provide player snacks, and so much more!

With the youth football season drawing to a close, the Ravens salute all the Team Moms who continued to make the game of football better, safer and more fun for all the players this year – and make life easier for all the coaches too. Thank you for your dedication to those you serve in football!

Specifically, five Team Moms have been selected as Ravens RISE "Team Moms of the Year" based on reviews of nominations received from coaches, parents and league administrators over the past month. These honorees include:

  • Jacqueline Armstead - Ellicott City Patriots 12U American
  • Kaili Sams - Silver Spring Saints 8U National
  • Karen Fox - Severna Park Green Hornets 12U American
  • Sharon Wiegand - PAL Hawks 100lb
  • Tamara Carter - TSA Hawks 11U & 14U

Over 100 applications were received through this promotion in 2016, and choosing just five to win this honor was extremely difficult since all nominations showcased Team Moms who do an extraordinary job caring for their teams. The Ravens deeply appreciate the vital work all Team Moms do for their players, coaches and parents. Thank you to all!

Ravens High School Coach of the Year – December 2016

The Ravens High School Coach of the Year Award has been a fixture in youth athletics since 1997.

Joe Polce, varsity head coach of the Walkersville Lions football team, has been named the 2016 Ravens High School Coach of the Year. Polce is the 20th recipient of the annual award. Finishing with a perfect 14-0 record this year, Polce led the Lions to their first undefeated season in school history. Walkersville returned to the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA) Class 2A state championship game for the second-consecutive season, where the seventh-year head coach helped secure his alma mater's first state title in 29 years with a 33-6 victory over the Elkton Golden Elks.

"A lot of these kids on the team this year were also on the team that lost in the championship game in 2015," Polce explained. "That motivation of losing after being so close last year really pushed the kids in the offseason and during the entire season. They were driven and focused to not just get back to the title game, but to win it this year."

"This group of kids means everything to me," Polce stated. "I've been coaching most of them since 2009 [as a youth football coach in the Glade Valley Athletic Association]. We've spent a lot of time together on and off the field, and we all have a great relationship. These boys mean the world to me."

As the 2016 Ravens High School Coach of the Year, Polce received an additional $2,000 donation toward Walkersville's football program.

"I'd like to thank the Baltimore Ravens for all they do to support not just Walkersville High School, but high school football throughout the state," Polce mentioned. "The recognition, financial contributions and assistance they provide is fantastic."

Each week during the season, the Ravens honored a high school coach who has made a significant impact on his student-athletes. Each winner was in attendance for the Ravens-Eagles game at M&T Bank Stadium on Dec. 18 for the naming of the Ravens High School Coach of the Year. In addition, each coach received a $2,000 donation to his school's football program and an award from Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.

Maryland State Champions Honored at M&T Bank Stadium – December 2016

Ravens Halftime Combine – Fall 2016

As part of their commitment to high school football in Maryland, the Baltimore Ravens have partnered with T. Rowe Price and Under Armour to recognize outstanding local high school student-athletes with the brand new Ravens Halftime Combine, presented by T. Rowe Price!

At halftime of all regular season Ravens home games, two area schools competed on the M&T Bank Stadium field against each other and the clock in a relay race competition of football drills! Each school was represented by five student-athletes in a tire flipping, agility running, back pedaling and touchdown throwing and catching combine.

Sixteen area schools selected an Offensive Lineman or Defensive Lineman to begin the competition with a tire flip from the goal line to the 10-yard line. A Running Back was next up to weave through a series of agility poles, and sprint to the 40-yard line. After the Running Back tagged in the next teammate (either a Linebacker or Defensive Back), this player back pedaled from the sideline to meet the Quarterback in the middle of the field. Once the Quarterback was given the ball, a Wide Receiver took off from the 30-yard line into the end zone to catch a touchdown pass from the signal caller.

While both teams in the combine received tickets to the game and commemorative t-shirts, the school with the fastest Halftime Combine time each week also was awarded a $500 gift card from Under Armour for their school's athletic department. The fastest time for the entire season won brand new Under Armour jerseys for their varsity team.

With a time of 31.85 seconds, Patterson Mill High School was crowned the 2016 Ravens Halftime Combine Champion and will receive new jerseys for the 2017 season! See below for official 2016 Halftime Combine times:

40 local children punted, passed, and kicked their way to the Ravens Punt, Pass and Kick (PPK) Team Championship at the Ravens Under Armour Performance Center on the eve of the Ravens home game against the Miami Dolphins, Saturday, December 3.

Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown – Fall 2016

Once again, the Ravens teamed up with The Baltimore Sun in 2016 to present the "Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown!" During each week of the high school football regular season, area high schools and communities showed their school pride by voting for their high school football match-up to be featured by the Ravens and The Baltimore Sun as that week's Showdown.

Of the three featured matchups each week, the game with the most votes was awarded with a visit from Ravens Cheerleaders and mascot, Poe, autographed giveaways for fans in the stands and more! Each school in the winning game received $1,000 donations to their athletic department and the student-athletes in the game were given commemorative t-shirts following the game. Additionally, a "Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown" football was donated to each school for their trophy case to remember the event.

In 2015, record voting highs were set to total near 1,000,000 votes for the season. The 2016 Showdown campaign has brought the same excitement to area schools and communities! Through 10 weeks of voting and games, Ravens Cheerleaders and mascot, Poe, traveled to many different areas of the state, all with very exciting high school football atmospheres. Voting totals tallied nearly 4,000,000 for the season and games were featured in Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Anne Arundel County, Frederick County, Washington County and many others!

Ravens RISE Stadium Classic – October 2016

When the Ravens were away, youth football teams got to play at M&T Bank Stadium on October 14 in the annual Ravens RISE Stadium Classic!

Two Ravens "Teams on the RISE" were randomly chosen for this exclusive experience to host a league game on the Ravens home field and experience a game day the Ravens way. At 6 p.m., the West Baltimore Ducks 8-10 team was able to move their game against the East Baltimore United Bills to the stadium, while the Old Mill Patriots 12U squad was selected to play their rival Severna Park Green Hornets under the lights as well.

After collecting their all-access credentials, each team took a behind-the-scenes tour of the Ravens locker room, received a pregame video message from Pro Bowl Ravens fullback Kyle Juszczyk, were introduced out of the Ravens tunnel through glowing Ravens eyes and a smoke curtain and played a full game on the same field their Ravens players do. The football teams weren't the only ones to get in on the fun as youth cheerleaders representing the teams were joined on the sidelines by Ravens Cheerleaders.

The RavensVision boards were on, music was pumped throughout the stadium and a PA announcer called the games.

"It was a fantastic experience for all involved," explained Severna Park Green Hornets 12U team mom Karen Fox.

Youth football teams from throughout the state of Maryland arrived early at the home of the Ravens and laced up their new cleats, broke out their new gloves and socks and tried on their new jerseys before being introduced just like the Ravens team on game day.
