Ray Lewis was one of the most energetic players in NFL history. His style of play and leadership was the catalyst for the Baltimore Ravens for 17 years. His speeches still echo in our minds and he became the greatest middle linebacker ever.
Now, five years after his retirement, Lewis is just weeks away from being enshrined and immortalized in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He will join fellow inductees this year, such as, Bobby Beathard, Robert Brazile, Brian Urlacher, Brian Dawkins, Jerry Kramer. Randy Moss and despite not being in attendance, Terrell Owens. To top it off, it was announced on Tuesday that Lewis will be the last one to speak at the ceremony.

A cool honor for Lewis to essentially main event this year’s Hall of Fame ceremony.
For Ravens fans traveling to Canton, Ohio, to witness their second enshrined Raven, they get to see the best linebacker of all-time saved for last. It will be a bit of a wait for Ray, but it will surely be well worth it.
