Ravens Summer Roost Taking Shape
Scott S. Bair Stadium has received a fresh coat of paint, fan barriers have been erected, and the new sod on the practice fields is beginning to root.

It's that time of year again.

Bird fans will soon flock to Westminster in a Hitchcockian swarm of purple & black in order to get a first look at the 2005 edition of the Baltimore Ravens. This year's camp, the tenth in as many years at McDaniel, gets underway on August 1st.

McDaniel's hilltop campus has long been the summer home of Baltimore football. Colts legends Johnny Unitas, Art Donovan, and Raymond Berry worked out the off-season kinks in Westminster decades before the likes of Kyle Boller, Jonathan Ogden, and Ray Lewis took to the field.
