O.J. Brigance Continues to Inspire Ravens and Us All

From the Baltimore Sun

The person considered the strongest Raven by coach John Harbaugh received the game ball after Saturday's AFC divisional playoff victory over the Tennessee Titans in Nashville, even though he didn't take a snap or put on a uniform.

In the victorious locker room at LP Field, Pro Bowl safety
Ed Reed handed the ball to O.J.Brigance, the Ravens' director of player development, saying, "This is for you."

Brigance expressed thanks from the motorized wheelchair that he uses as he battles
Lou Gehrig's disease, then added, "but we've got two more to
play."
