Ravens Dedicate Game to WR Coach Bobby Engram After Death of His Daughter


The Ravens dedicated Saturday's preseason win in Miami to the family of Wide Receivers Coach Bobby Engram. Engram's 20-year-old daughter, Bobbi, passed away earlier in the day.

Engram had traveled to Florida with the team Friday, but returned home to be with his family Saturday.

"It's just an awesome family, a wonderful Christian family. Strong," Head Coach John Harbaugh said at the start of his postgame press conference.

"They're going to be good. Their church is supporting them right now. Our Ravens family is supporting them. I just want to ask all Ravens fans to pray for Bobby Engram, Deanna Engram, and for Bobbi, who is in heaven right now with her arms wrapped around her creator."

Engram, who had a 15-year NFL career, has been the team's wide receivers coach since 2014. Before the game, the Ravens issued a statement announcing Bobbi's passing.

"It was very shocking the news this morning," quarterback Robert Griffin III said. "I got a chance to reach out to Bobby and talk to him and just told him we're going to go out there and compete for him and his daughter tonight. ... When I heard coach talking about it and asking everybody to pray for Bobby and his family, it hits home. As a father, you don't want anything like that to happen to your daughters. We just can't wait to hug on Bobby and be there for him when we gets back."
