PLAYERS: Ray Lewis
TEAMS: Baltimore Ravens
Sure, Ray Lewis has played at Mile High Stadium. But that's nothing compared with his first big project in retirement. After going out as a Super Bowl champion, the former Ravens linebacker intends to climb Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro. As he announced online : "In one month, I will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to raise money and awareness for clean water projects in East Africa. I am so FIRED UP for this adventure." Some guys take up golf after they retire from the NFL. But the future Hall of Famer intends to take on the world's tallest free-standing mountain, more than 19,000 feet high. And though Lewis faced Bengals and Bears over his 17-year NFL career, he could encounter elephants and leopards on his ascent. But just think how his signature dance would look more than 3 ½ miles above sea level.
