Baltimore Ravens great and future first ballot Hall of Fame Linebacker Ray Lewis hit a new milestone today, 40 years old. Lewis, who led the Ravens to two Super Bowl victories over his 17 year career, all with the Ravens is now retired from playing football.
Lewis now serves as an NFL analyst with ESPN. He could have easily chosen to become a coach, as he would have been highly in demand. But he chose not to in order to be able to be there for his children, and help his oldest, Ray Lewis III with his football career. Ray III is a 5"9 cornerback who transferred to Coastal Carolina this year after spending two years, one as a redshirt at Miami, his fathers alma mater.
Besides his job with ESPN, Lewis also continues to make appearances as a guest speaker, including his recent locker room visit to the Washington Wizards during their playoff series.
Wishing Ray a happy 40th birthday, and many more healthy years!
