A first-team All-American in 1995, Ray Lewis compiled one of the most dominant careers ever by a linebacker at The U. Lewis registered 160 total tackles in 1995 and 152 in 1994, earning All-BIG EAST recognition both seasons. Ray was drafted in the first round by Baltimore in 1996 and played all 17 of his professional seasons with the Ravens.
