Baltimore Summer Football Festival Shines in Carroll County

005

Several current and former Baltimore Ravens were back in Carroll County over the weekend celebrating with fans at the Baltimore Football Festival, put on by LGC Sports Marketing and sponsored by Poor Boy’s Sports.

The two-day event, which was held at the Carroll County Agriculture Center, featured something for every Ravens fan. Running back Ray Rice was on hand Friday evening for a special autograph session and mingled with fans throughout the night. Joining Rice on Friday night were teammates Gino Gradkowski, James Ihedigbo and Chykie Brown all of whom signed autographs for all in attendance.

A special Cornhole Tournament was held at the event Friday and the winner took on the Ravens “Wolf Pack,” Justin Tucker, Sam Koch and Morgan Cox. As many fans know the popular beanbag game is a player favorite inside the locker room.

The fun carried over on Saturday as Super Bowl 35 Champs Michael McCrary, Duane Starks, Spencer Folau and former Baltimore Colt Lenny Moore greeted fans and signed autographs.

“What an awesome event! The festival was well organized by LGC Sports Marketing and the Ravens Super Bowl champions, past and present, were as classy as it gets–so friendly and gracious to fans and took their time signing and posing for photos,” Pat Little Hurst said when asked about her experience. ”The great Colts Hall of Famer, Lenny Moore, was an added bonus; not only a great player but such a wonderful man.”

For a community that lost the tradition of training camp when the team decided to keep it at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills, it was great to see such a great turnout of fans. The fans will no doubt continue to support the Ravens and all of their players regardless of where they practice.
