BATON ROUGE - Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis took to the stage, and chance, to speak to both high school coaches and (later on) the LSU football team.

The 13-time Pro Bowler talked more about how he wanted to be remembered off the field than x's and o's.

"I'm listening to these people speak about me and not one time did one of those men speak about a football play I made," said Lewis. "Every time they talked about the respect for the game, how I treated people."

Instead, the two-time Super Bowl champion spoke to over 100 high school coaches about working with players on their character.

"Today we have the chance, today," preached the impassioned former NFL'er. "Because when we become better men, we influence our history."

For more on the story, Sports 2's Brian Holland was there for Ray Lewis' speech and has more from Friday's LSU Coaches Clinic.
