Due to unresolved student-athlete compliance and NFL guideline details, the Joe Flacco Passing Academy originally scheduled for today and Saturday has been canceled.

The issues were unable to be ironed out in time for the camp at McDaniel College to take place, according to a team official.

The camp was billed as including Flacco, backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell in addition to some of the Ravens’ wide receivers.

The camp was designed for 100 invited high school players.

Flacco is the Ravens’ all-time leading passer with 13,816 yards and 80 touchdowns.

He passed for 3,610 yards, 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions last season, leading the Ravens to the AFC championship game where they lost to the New England Patriots.

“We’re excited to build relationships with area high school kids and work to help them improve,” Flacco said in a statement earlier this spring when the passing academy was announced. “This gives us an opportunity to teach young players many of the things we go through each week during the season.

"We want this to be something they can take with them and utilize in the long haul. This extends beyond football, as we will focus on what it takes to be successful both on and off the field.”
