Ray Lewis Speaks to Alabama Coach Nick Saban’s Players

Alabama Coach, Nick Saban, invited two powerful guest speakers, NFL great Ray Lewis and former NFL coach, Herm Edwards, to speak at his fall camp hoping to get his players focused for the upcoming season.

Lewis, known for his intensity and ability to speak from the heart, is one of the greatest motivational speakers today and has been using his gift to motivate audiences all across the country. Edwards speeches, known for providing interesting anecdotes, spoke to the upcoming NFL rookies in the hopes of keeping them grounded.

However, according to linebacker C.J. Mosley, the Alabama players were most excited about Ray Lewis showing up and considered it a big deal to hear from the 13-time Pro Bowler and two-time Super Bowl winner.

Just his presence to be here … people started whispering around like, ‘I heard Ray Lewis is going to be here. I heard Ray Lewis is going to be here.’ For me, that’s one of my role models and one of my idols growing up as a linebacker and as a football player. Just to have him here was very exciting.

“We had probably two of the best guest speakers the last two nights that our players could ever hope for: Ray Lewis and Herm Edwards,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said after practice Tuesday on August 6.

“Both guys talked a lot about what it takes to be a man, but really that most things that you regret the most is if you don’t take advantage of your gifts. Be all you can be. What the difference between being good and being great is.”
