Baltimore Ravens kicker Bill Cundiff and reserve running back Matt Lawrence visited Baltimore City’s Archbishop Borders School Nov. 29 and had a message for the student body: value your education.
Cundiff said he lives by “three Fs” to succeed in the National Football League: family, friends and faith.
“You guys can go great places if you just pay attention to your teachers,” Cundiff said. “You can accomplish great things, but it starts with education.”
Archbishop Borders principal Cathy Marshall reminded her students that the football players “didn’t just wake up one day and they were on the Ravens team. It’s a long, hard process.”
The appearance was made possible, in part, by the Church of the Holy Apostles of Gambrills, which has a partnership with Archbishop Borders. Church of the Holy Apostles parishioner Erika Robuck said “It has been great for us and them.”
