Ravens' Rookie Torrey Smith's Charity Event A Big Hit

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith still hasn't put on a purple jersey yet, but he has been elevated to star status in his hometown of Fredricksburg, Virginia. Smith held his charity basketball event at his former high school and it was a huge success with the local residents. Smith, as well as other Ravens and NFL players, helped to raise money for underprivileged students to be able to have the best equipment to protect them when they play.

According to Fredericksburg.com, other players included current Ravens cornerback Josh Wilson, fellow rookie, QB Tyrod Taylor and Fredericksburg native, former Towson University players and now New Orleans Saints left tackle, Jermon Bushrod.

With only two weeks to set this all up, Smith was amazed at the support as well as the turnout this event drew from players and fans alike. He better get used to this type of stardom, as now a member of the Baltimore Ravens will continue to make his growth in fame skyrocket, at least around Stafford High School.
