The Baltimore Ravens hosted their annual Ravens Football Clinic, presented by Under Armour, at the Fallston Recreation Complex for over 300 Harford County youth athletes on Saturday. Members of the Ravens’ coaching staff were on hand to guide participants through a series of age-appropriate drills to develop their offensive and defensive skill.
The Ravens coaches in attendance included: Bobby Engram (wide receivers), Jay Harbaugh (Offensive Quality Control), Chris Hewitt (Assistant Defensive Backs), Don Martindale (Inside Linebackers) and Clarence Brooks (Defensive Line). The young athletes got to take part in drills that were similar to the ones that the coaches have Ravens players do. The Ravens head team physician Dr. Andrew Tucker wrapped up the clinic by speaking to the athletes and their parents about concussion awareness.
Coach Engram was one of the favorite coaches at the clinic. The kids took to his hands on style of coaching and it showed by the progress that they made as he helped them learn how to become a better receiver . He talked about why he came out to coach at the clinic.
“It means a lot, it’s a blessing because I remember when people came and helped me as a young football player. It’s a part of the reason why I’ve been able to do some of the things that I did in my career. You’re never too young to learn fundamentals. It’s great when they see coaches and players that care about them as people. To me coaching is a way to continue to serve.”
Each camper received a t-shirt provided by Under Armour. Ravens youth football specialist, Coach Tom gave the kids a very upbeat pep talk and encouraged them to “Play Like A Raven.” There are two more Ravens clinics coming up this month.

Victor Santiago from Aberdeen Maryland told Pro Player Insiders that he had a great time at the camp. “My favorite thing was coming here and having fun. I learned to keep a good base in the offensive line drills. It was great to learn about values like hard work.” The camp was a success as many of the young athletes left with a smile on their face.
