Aggression and speed are two words used to describe former Baltimore Ravens defensive end Michael McCrary. After being a two-time Pro Bowler, Michael helped the Ravens bring the Vince Lombardi Trophy to Baltimore in 2000 with a victory over the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV. To this day, Michael holds the Wake Forest record for most sacks in a season (16) and sacks in a career (30).
Tom Matte is considered one of Maryland’s best-ever athletes thanks to his 12-year pro football career with the Baltimore Colts. Because of his versatility to play multiple positions on the field, Tom was selected by the National Football League as one of the 10 most versatile players of all time in the NFL. Tom was the first player in a Super Bowl to run 100 yards, to record a 58-yard run, and to carry a ball 11 times for an average gain of 10.5 yards in a single game – the record of the highest per-carry rushing average in a Super Bowl game.
