In front of a crowd of VIP guests, the Baltimore Ravens unveiled a Frederick Kail-designed statue of retired Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, which stands just feet from the iconic statue of Baltimore legend quarterback Johnny Unitas. M&T Bank Stadium now has a unique place in the world of professional football, as stone statues of the greatest offensive player along with the greatest defensive player, possibly in the history of the game, now decorate the entrance of the stadium.

This permanent marker to a storied 17-year career is a testament to Mr. Lewis’ professionalism on the field and commitment to the city of Baltimore. Power Source commends this young man for his relentless pursuit of self-actualization, as he has crafted himself into an excellent individual far beyond the playing field. For decades to come, the Baltimore region will continue to benefit from his commitment to community.

The National Football League is full of excellent professionals, but the erection of a stone monument to Mr. Lewis’ consistent championship work ethic and performance is unprecedented. As the years go by, this monument to Mr. Lewis will be a consistent symbol of his triumphant career. The statue symbolizes more than excellence on the football field, it embodies the indomitable will to succeed and faith in a higher power that guides him everyday.
