Ray Lewis knows a thing or two about winning Super Bowls. In his glorious 17 year career with the Baltimore Ravens, Lewis won the Championship twice and was also presented with the Super Bowl MVP award. Ray is regarded as a legend and still looked up to by many.
The Hall of Fame Linebacker recently turned 45 and nobody could keep from paying tributes to him. He was a force to be reckoned with.
Chatting with the Baltimore Ravens, Ray said, “To become a Champion, it’s not about you. It about you sharpening all of the tools around you.” This is his advice to Lamar Jackson about what it takes to win a title. “I would give him the same advice that I gave myself“, Lewis said.
Ravens Quarterback, Lamar Jackson, is now hoping to take further the legacy that Ray helped build and bring home a title or more himself. Jackson’s first two years with Baltimore have surpassed even the most optimistic expectations. Ray said, “Champions don’t hesitate to walk on the battlefield, and certain battles ain’t even about the scoreboard.” This is some great advice from one champ to another rising champ. It will go a long way and help Lamar in achieving the great feat that he was born to.
Jackson, last season, threw a league-high 36 touchdowns, paired with 1,206 yards – more than any quarterback in NFL history. Lewis is certain Lamar is gonna do a lot of things and be around for a long time. But right now, he “must make everyone around him better by challenging them to be better.”
The MVP, Lamar, is special because he rose to the top of the game so quickly and did it while facing a lot of criticism despite his award. While self-quarantine is keeping him off the field, the Quarterback is getting back into football mode by throwing the ball in his backyard. He has also been doing pilates and yoga to keep himself mentally strong during this time.
With so much promise, Lamar Jackson surely has a great shot at winning a Championship soon.
