Legendary NFL player Ray Lewis was announced as the keynote speaker for the 77th annual McCormick Unsung Heroes banquet that happened last month in Baltimore, Maryland. The senior manager of McCormick’s Corporate Communications Scott Robinson commented that they were proud and felt privileged to have the former pro come to their event as he is a complete inspiration to their community after all of the wonderful work he has done. Lewis talked about his own struggles in both his professional and personal life, and found a way to connect with the audience on a new level. Even though there were so tickets available to the public, many individuals still turned up to the event and had a great time interacting with and listening to the retired Raven.
The Florida native and two-time Super Bowl champion was picked up by the Ravens in the 1996 NFL Draft and stayed with the team throughout his entire 16-year professional football career, which he left in 2012 to be an ESPN sports commentator the following year. Lewis was elected to be a Pro Bowl player 13 times, and even won the NFL Linebacker of the Year award twice in the years 1999 and 2003. He is known as one of the greatest players ever to play his position in the league and has surely delivered many great plays for his fans and teammates.
Lewis recently spoke at the 77th annual McCormick Unsung Heroes banquet that occurred this past May in Baltimore, Maryland. It was a very enriching experience for all of the audience members and coordinators of the event, as Lewis was a perfect fit to be the program’s speaker with all of his generous community service.
