Reed shows kids they can pull themselves up

Ravens safety Ed Reed first visited Baltimore’s Booker T. Washington Middle School in 2002. Since then, the Pro Bowler has returned on his off days to speak to the students, many of whom come from impoverished backgrounds, about staying on the right track.

“These are among the messages Reed delivers to the student body on any given Tuesday during football season,” writes Ken Murray of The Baltimore Sun. “He will pop up unannounced in a pottery class to talk shop. He’ll meet with a group of young boys who need to grasp the importance of respecting elders and peers. He’ll introduce businessmen to serve as role models for the next generation. He relates to the kids on their level.” More
