Press Release: Ravens Rise High School Football Showdown

For five weeks during the 2022 regular season, the Baltimore Ravens will recognize one local high school football game as their Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown.  

At each contest, a current or former Ravens player will be in attendance for a pre-game visit with each team and to help administer the opening coin toss. Ravens Cheerleaders, mascot and Baltimore's Marching Ravens will also attend, and both teams will be awarded apparel to wear during the game. Each participating school will receive a $1,500 monetary donation from the Ravens to help enhance their respective programs.  

The Ravens will also bring elements of their iconic pre-game introductions from M&T Bank Stadium to the high school for student-athletes to run through a billowing smoke curtain and pyrotechnics. Following the matchup, each Showdown will be highlighted with a detailed game recap and photo gallery by The Baltimore Sun.

New this season, all Showdowns will be broadcast on WBAL-TV's latest streaming channel, Very Baltimore, and will be live streamed on the Baltimore Ravens YouTube channel. Produced by Corrigan Sports Enterprises, the excitement and action from these games will now be available for all to see.
