It’s time to honor some local sports “saints” with our #WNSTSweet16

1. Lenny Moore

When I took over the task of this list, I thought to myself “what one Baltimore athlete has touched the most-either via quality, quantity or some combination of both?”

I can’t imagine there’s an answer other than Lenny Moore. The Hall of Fame Baltimore Colts RB has given back with his time, with his money and with an incredible heart. Few who have met Lenny Moore have received anything other than an incredible warmth and kindness. Lenny has been involved in many charitable endeavors (including the Ed Block Foundation), but his personal touch is the biggest story of how he’s “given back”.

He had to be #1. He remains a civic treasure.

    I seem to recall when he was inducted into the Ravens Ring of Honor that Michael McCrary was mentioned as one of the most significant charitable athletes in Baltimore sports history.
