Ravens Rookie Torrey Smith Hosting Charity Hoops Game


Baltimore Ravens
rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith is already beginning to 'pay it forward' by hosting a charity basketball game at his former high school to help underprivileged young athletes in the Fredericksburg area afford the type of athletic gear that Torrey was unable to afford while he was a student there. Torrey was an accomplished high school basketball star in high school, as evidenced by the YouTube video above.

Even though he has not received a penny from the NFL, he is still grateful for the opportunities that his high school afforded him, which obviously was enough to get noticed by the University of Maryland and ultimately the Baltimore Ravens. Due to the current labor dispute between the NFL owners and players, Torrey has yet to sign the rookie contact that will elevate him from what used to be described as poverty to what will shortly be changing to a millionaire.

According to Fredericksburg.com, Smith is planning to bring a group of professional athletes to Stafford High School, including Ravens rookie quarterback and ex-Virginia Tech star Tyrod Taylor; Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey; Ravens cornerback Josh Wilson; and Cleveland Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, among others.
