Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown
The Baltimore Ravens and The Baltimore Sun are back again with the Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown. This season we are bringing these games directly to the fans by featuring a live stream for each Showdown, so if you cannot make the game, you are in luck as fans will be able to watch via the Baltimore Ravens YouTube Channel and WBAL's "Very Local" app.
New this season will be a vote for Showdown Play of the Year and Player of the Year that will be determined by the fans in a poll on The Baltimore Sun's website following the final Showdown game. At the end of the season, these accolades will be recognized at the Ravens vs. Atlanta Falcons game on December 24.
Over the course of this year's Showdown campaign, current Ravens players, cheerleaders, pep band and more will paint the town purple with 5 stops under area Friday Night Lights. The show begins at Calvert Hall on Friday, September 23 and will make several stops around Baltimore before ending at the historic Baltimore City College and Baltimore Polytechnic Institute rivalry, the City-Poly game. The games featured in this year's slate were determined based on pre-season ranking, geographical location and suggestions of area experts from the Baltimore Sun and the Ravens.
