Ray Lewis has been a symbolic figure of Baltimore since  he joined the Baltimore Ravens over 10 years ago. However, today Ray Lewis gracefully announced his retirement from the Baltimore Ravens. Ray Lewis is undeniably the best player to hold his position in the NFL. The 26th draft pick of first round, Ray Lewis, left college just before his senior year at the University of Miami to peruse what would become one of the most monumental NFL careers in history.  But, in spite of his greatness he couldn’t hold it forever. Like every great player, the time comes for them to retire.

In his press conference announcing his retirement, Ray described his career as fulfilling. “There is no accolade I don’t have”, says Ray. He is absolutely right. If you don’t know what is on this all star players resume, we will jog your memory.

Here is a list of a few of Ray Lewis’ many accomplishments:

Super Bowl Champion (XXXV)

Super Bowl MVP (XXXV)

NFL 2000’s All-Decade Team

AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year (2000,2003)

and More……

We will truly miss the anchor of team spirit, Ray Lewis. He is what some like to call “the heart and soul” of the team. His energy and show stopping team spirit will be missed from future Sunday’s to come. For now Ray Lewis and his teammates are preparing to play against the Colts in the play-offs next Sunday. We wish the Ravens and Ray Lewis the best!

GO RAVENS!
