Post NFL, Ray has achieved great success in a number of business and philanthropic endeavors, always seeking to make the world a better place along the way.

NFL Hall of Famer Lewis is widely considered to be one of the most dominant defensive players in the history of the NFL. He led the Baltimore Ravens to victory in Super Bowl XXXV (where he was named Super Bowl MVP) and again in Super Bowl XLVII, in what would be the final game of his career. Lewis is only the second player in NFL history to win both the NFL Defensive Player of the Year and Super Bowl MVP awards in the same year (2000). His 13 Pro Bowl selections are tied for the fifth-most in the NFL by any player, and the most by a linebacker. He was named AP All-Pro ten times and NFL Defensive Player of the Year twice (2000 and 2003).

Today, Lewis is a New York Times best-selling author for his breakout memoir, I Feel Like Going On. He returns this Fall for another season as a member of Showtime’s popular Inside the NFL. In 2015, Lewis partnered with Rob Wallace to found Power52, a growing company providing training, jobs and affordable renewable energy to inner city communities. Lewis is also an official partner with Under Armour, seeking to bring help and hope through community impact programs. Read Less ^
