ExtremeRavens: The Sanctuary

Reed learned improvisational skills at early age


Recommended Posts

MIAMI – This is the type of skill you develop when it’s just you against the rest of the group, the sidewalk and the fence.


That’s how Baltimore Ravens free safety Ed Reed and his childhood friends practiced their football skills growing up in Louisiana, where his family moved around. There’d be 12-15 guys out on the field. One would have the ball and the rest would chase him, trying to keep him from scoring.


“Like playing 21 or Hog in basketball, just you against everybody else,” said Reed, who finished third this season in the balloting for NFL Defensive Player of the Year and will try to help the Ravens reach the AFC championship game when they face the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.
