Ravens Represented at NFL FLAG Championships at Pro Bowl – January 2018

Each year, the top flag football teams across the country travel to the NFL FLAG Championships to battle for the title of national champion. This year, the Ravens had two teams in the mix, the Arlington Ravens boys and girls 13-14 squads were participants vying for the titles at the Pro Bowl in Orlando, Fla. January 25-28.

Before leaving Maryland for the tournament, the team visited the Ravens Under Armour Performance Center to tour the facility and received a good luck letter from Ravens coach John Harbaugh and Ravens players QB Joe Flacco, LB C.J. Mosley, WR Mike Wallace and K Justin Tucker.

Upon arriving to Disney’s Wide World of Sports on Thursday (1/25), the players were greeted by Ravens LB CJ Mosley who surprised them with custom painted cleats for each player. CJ spent some time prepping the teams for the tournament with some words of wisdom and brand-new boots to compete in! Check out the Surprise Here!

Both teams competed in “pool play” on Friday (1/26), before advancing into the “knockout round” at Disney’s Wide World of Sports. The boys team came up short in their playoff matchup, they started strong but ultimately could not hold off their opponents. Their female counterparts dominated pool play, going unbeaten and taking the top seed. After blanking the Patriots squad in the semi-finals, the girls earned a spot in the championship game against the Arizona Cardinals representatives. Following Pro Bowl practice Saturday (1/27) morning, the pro’s field was re-lined for the NFL Flag Championship match. The girls went down 6-0 early, battled back to take the lead 13-12, but were ousted by the Cardinals on the final play of the game. The boys and girls flag teams showed character, perseverance and undoubtedly played like Ravens during their time in Orlando!

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 names and Ravens themes) from the Ravens, meet and greets with Pro Bowl players (including Ravens S Eric Weddle and LB CJ Mosley) and passes to ride the attractions at the Disney Parks. And to top it off, both squads received tickets to the Pro Bowl game on Sunday to cap this unforgettable weekend!

Congratulations to the Arlington Ravens boys and girls 13-14 teams for representing the Ravens at the 2017 NFL FLAG Championships!

Ravens RISE "Team Mom of the Year" – January 2018

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:

  • Careyna Shelton - Pikesville Wildcats 10U
  • Ivy Craig - Clear Spring Cardinals PeeWee
  • Jen Combs - North Harford Hawks 8U
  • Marquita Melvin - Reisterstown Mustangs 8U
  • Shannon Burns - Perry Hall Gators 10U

Over 100 applications were received through this promotion in 2017, 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 2017

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

Finishing with a 12-1 record this year, Palmer led the Cobras to the most single-season victories in program history and the school’s first-ever trip to the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA) Class 2A state semifinals. Harford Tech doubled its previous win total for one season (six, most recently accomplished in 2008), and the first-year head coach helped guide the school to its only undefeated regular season.

During the playoffs, the Cobras advanced to the “Final Four” behind a 22-21 victory over the Kent Island Buccaneers in the MPSSAA Class 2A East regional final. After trailing 21-9 entering the game’s final frame, Harford Tech rallied with two long touchdown passes from sophomore QB Ryan Hunt to senior WR Jordan Bright, giving the Cobras a lead they would not relinquish. A fumble recovery by sophomore LB Jonathan Fletcher on Kent Island’s final possession secured the regional title for Harford Tech.

The Cobras advanced to the semifinal matchup against the Gwynn Park Yellow Jackets, but their perfect season came to an end with a narrow defeat (16-9) to the Prince George’s County school.

“Our program has never been known as a powerhouse,” Palmer explained. “Between our amazing staff and players, we were all part of a culture change this year. Knowing we have changed how the rest of the county and state views our football team is major.”

A longtime youth recreation coach and previous junior varsity coach at Harford Tech, Palmer captured the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference Susquehanna Division championship in his inaugural year at the helm of the varsity team. Palmer also serves as a Baltimore City police sergeant and works the overnight shift at his precinct so he can attend all football functions with his team.

“For me, my purpose as a coach is to build young men – not winning or losing football games,” Palmer added. “Football is simply the vehicle I use to do this. I am big on character, discipline and doing things the right way, and when you combine that with athleticism and talent, the wins will come. This year, we had quality coaches teaching quality young men, and the wins followed. That’s the formula I’ve used since I began coaching little league football years ago, and it’s been powerful to see the results in the win column and in life as the boys grow into productive men.”

As the 2017 Ravens High School Coach of the Year, Palmer received an additional $2,000 donation toward Harford Tech’s football program and an opportunity to attend the 2018 Pro Bowl in Orlando, Fla., as the Baltimore Ravens’ nominee for the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year award.

“Any program that is successful is not a one-man show, and we are no different at Harford Tech,” Palmer stated. “I have a tremendous football staff around me here that is extremely knowledgeable about the game and fantastic at teaching it. I greatly appreciate their dedication and support to the program.”

Ravens Halftime Combine – Fall 2017

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 30.85 seconds, Woodlawn High School was crowned the 2017 Ravens Halftime Combine Champion and will receive new jerseys for the 2018 season! See below for official 2017 Halftime Combine times:

Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown – Fall 2017

For a third year running, the Ravens teamed up with The Baltimore Sun in 2017 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.

Year in and year out the Showdown campaign has brought major 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. And for the second consecutive year voting totals tallied nearly 4,000,000 for the season and games were featured in Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Anne Arundel County, Howard County, Frederick County, and many others!

Ravens RISE Stadium Classic – October 2017

Following the Ravens 40-0 victory over the Miami Dolphins on October 26th for Thursday Night Football, M&T Bank Stadium hosted more match-ups the very next night for the Ravens RISE Stadium Classic. The grass was cut, the field painted, the locker rooms cleaned, the introduction tunnel set, the RavensVision boards turned on and the concession stands re-stocked for the annual “Friday Night Lights” contests between local youth football squads.

For the October 27th showdowns, two Ravens "Teams on the RISE" were randomly chosen for this exclusive experience to move a league game to the Ravens home field and play like the pros. For the 6 p.m. kickoff, the Elkridge Hurricanes 12U were selected to play their postseason game against the Ellicott City Patriots at the Stadium Classic, while the 8 p.m. match-up had the Perry Hall Gators 11U tabbed to move their contest with the Bel Air Terps to M&T Bank Stadium.

"What a wonderful experience for my son and all our family and friends," exclaimed Brian Niemiec, a Perry Hall Gators parent

Ravens Youth Football Grant Package Pick-Up – July 2017

On Saturday, August 5th, over 20 recipients of the 2017 Ravens Youth Football Grant traveled to M&T Bank Stadium to pick up brand-new football gear they were awarded by the Ravens Foundation and Under Armour this season including jerseys, cleats, gloves and footballs!

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. The teams entered the field under the glowing Ravens eyes and through a curtain of smoke. On the field, they were cheered on by Ravens Cheerleaders and Poe, then took an exclusive behind the scenes tour of M&T Bank Stadium.

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!

Check out a photo gallery from the 2017 Play Like a Raven Football Clinic!

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.
