Ozzie Newsome has been inducted into the National - Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Newsome starred in three sports during his high school days.

As if the College and Pro Football Hall of Fames weren't enough, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome has earned another accolade on his storied career.

But this time, it's to recognize his playing days from a much earlier time. Newsome was officially inducted into the National High School Hall of Fame on Tuesday.

During his early days at Colbert County High School in Leighton, Ala., Newsome was a standout in football, basketball and baseball. His football team won a state championship in 1972 and his baseball squad finished runner-up in 1973. His achievements on the gridiron were what got him into the University of Alabama on a football scholarship.

Newsome joined four other athletes that are being recognized by the National High School Hall of Fame. Those are Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway (basketball), Casey Blake (track, basketball, football, baseball), Michael Devereaux (track, basketball, football, baseball) and Suzy Powell (track, basketball).

Newsome and the others will take part in an induction ceremony on July 2 at the Boston Marriott Copley Place in Boston.
