Several current and former Baltimore Ravens attended the funeral for former team owner Art Modell, who died at the age of 87 last week. No surprise it was accomplished motivational speaker Ray Lewis who stood out for the speech he gave.
Lewis, the second ever draft choice by the Ravens, eulogized Modell. He spoke about Modell being a visionary for moving the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore and starting the Ravens franchise. He discussed making marks in life and achieving legacies. He even talked about how he wanted to be like Modell.
The two were close while Modell was alive, and Lewis even shared that his former boss used to kiss him and tell him how much he loved him.
Lewis provided a nice tribute to Modell, concluding his speech by saying what Modell did in life was “well done.” The same can be said for Lewis’ speech.
