Two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year and 12-time legendary Pro Bowler Ray Lewis, of the Baltimore Ravens, winners of Super Bowl XLVII, is coming to Paducah, Kentucky. The two-time Super Bowl champion and future Hall of Famer has committed to “An Evening of Excellence” on Saturday, August 17, 2013, at the McCracken County High School Strawberry Hills Pharmacy Arena at 7:00pm.
Lewis played his entire career (1996-2012) with the Ravens and his hard hits and determination helped the franchise win Super Bowl titles – XXXV (named MVP) and XLVII. His 12 Pro Bowl selections are tied for the fifth-most in NFL history and most by a linebacker. Ray Lewis is one of only six players to earn the AP Defensive Player of the Year Award multiple times (2000 and 2003).
Lewis is involved in charitable activities, motivational speaking and mentoring. He started the Ray Lewis 52 Foundation, a non-profit corporation which provides personal and economic assistance to disadvantaged youth. In May 2010, a portion of Baltimore’s North Avenue was renamed “Ray Lewis Way” in honor of his charitable work; similar honors include a 2006 JB Award (named for CBS broadcaster James Brown) and an “Act of Kindness” Award for his community work.
