We're thrilled that he wants to use his blog to discuss what it takes to become a leader in the NFL, and I'm confident that everyone will find something useful and entertaining in Mr. Lewis's blog.
Emeryville, CA (PRWEB) October 9, 2007
One of the most impassioned leaders in all of sports, NFL linebacker Ray Lewis, has launched his personal blog at Yardbarker.com, where he will be sharing his insights about life as the leader of the Baltimore Ravens, it was announced today.
By building the first of its kind community of athlete bloggers, Yardbarker.com, the premier destination for unfiltered sports commentary by fans and bloggers, is changing the way athletes communicate with sports fans.
Lewis, the future Hall of Famer, joins an athlete blog community that includes NFL Pro Bowlers Donovan McNabb, Bart Scott and Isaac Bruce, MLB All Star pitcher John Lackey, NBA All Star Baron Davis and future NBA stars Greg Oden and Michael Conley, among others.
"I am excited about joining the Yardbarker community because it will allow me to share my views and perspectives with the fans," Lewis said. "I am going to be open and honest and I will be responding to questions and comments whenever I can. It is going to be fun to have that direct connection with the fans."
Regarded as one of the greatest defensive players in NFL history, Lewis is one of only six players ever to be named NFL Defensive Player of the Year more than once (2000, 2003). The 12-year veteran has been selected to eight Pro Bowls and earned Super Bowl XXXV MVP honors by leading the Ravens to the NFL crown in 2000.
"Adding Ray Lewis brings our athlete blog network to a whole new level," Yardbarker co-founder Pete Vlastelica said. "We're thrilled that he wants to use his blog to discuss what it takes to become a leader in the NFL, and I'm confident that everyone will find something useful and entertaining in Mr. Lewis's blog."
