Video: What fueled Ray Lewis' intensity

By Jamison Hensley


As a beat reporter for the Ravens for 11 years, I got to know Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis quite well. I've seen him connect with children at charity events. I've spoken to Lewis' mother about the linebacker's early life. But this 14-minute video peels back another layer to Lewis.

E:60 connects with Lewis and the man who fueled the future Hall of Famer's legendary intensity. ESPN's Rachel Nichols takes an exclusive look at a family trying to break the generational curse of abandonment.
