Ray Lewis fires up the Stanford locker room


There are few athletes in sports who have the ability to fire up teammates like Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

Stanford head coach Johnny Dawkins took advantage of this before his team’s Postseason NIT semifinal against Massachusetts, a game the Cardinal won 74-64.

Five years following his retirement Lewis is headed for Canton as one of the greatest linebackers to have ever played professional football. Maybe he can do some motivational speaking as well.

Stanford takes on Minnesota in the Postseason NIT title game on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.
