I remember reading about how Ray Lewis gets requests all the time to give motivational speeches. The awesome thing was that he frequently accepts them. As in, the Ravens will be playing at Tampa Bay and he'll just drop in to Hillsborough High School to fire up their football team.
He seems like one of those guys you would kill (pun probably intended) to be teammates with and love to play for.
