Part of Baltimore's North Avenue to be renamed "Ray Lewis Way"

Baltimore Ravens All-Pro middle linebacker Ray Lewis is being immortalized on the roads of Baltimore.

"Ray Lewis Way" will be unveiled Tuesday afternoon in Baltimore City.

The two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year is having a section of Baltimore City's North Avenue renamed after him. The North Avenue corridor at the corner of Broadway wil be renamed.

This is the first time that a city road has been named after a Raven.

The North Avenue corridor is home to the DIAKON Center, where Lewis and his charitable foundation host an annual Thanksgiving distribution for nearly 1,000 Baltimore families in need.

Lewis will be there to accept the honor, and Baltimore City, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and Ravens coach, John Harbaugh, will be among those who make remarks.

This will forever remind the the city of Baltimore about the important part Ray Lewis has played in Ravens history. And in my opinion, He certainly deserves it!
