After winning the Super Bowl on Sunday and parading through the streets of Baltimore on Tuesday, Ray Lewis’s next stop was in Lake Mary, Florida, on Wednesday, where his son was one of the thousands of high school football players who officially got a college scholarship on National Signing Day.
Ray Lewis III, as expected, signed on with his dad’s alma mater, Miami.
“Now I can finally go out and show the world my talent, what my parents have instilled in me over the years and I’m ready to do it,” Ray Lewis III told the Orlando Sentinel.
Ray Lewis said he was proud to see what his son has become.
“His head is on pretty straight and we’ve done a heck of a job as parents with keeping him kind of even keel,” Ray Lewis said. “He already understands that it’s a business and he understands what he’s going to college for, and that’s to get his education. Sports definitely come second.”
The 5-foot-9, 190-pound Lewis III is listed by recruiting sites as an “athlete” because it’s not yet clear what position he’ll play. He scored 93 touchdowns as a running back in high school.
