Looks like Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis is looking to hoist one more trophy in his lifetime, as ABC announced yesterday that he will be among the 12 celebrities competing on the 28th season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."
Th-year-old Lewis won two Super Bowls with the Baltimore Ravens and reached the Pro Bowl 13 times.
The only other professional athlete on this season's show—and I use that term very loosely—is Lamar Odom,who I suppose is looking to prove he can move his hips while standing as well.
Odom, it should be noted, is only 39, but has obviously put far more miles on his frame between his near-death experience—I am of course talking about his living amongst the Kardashians for several years. Although I hear he had a run in with drugs as well.
Others competing against Lewis on this season's "Dancing with the Stars" include former supermodel Christie Brinkley, actor James Van Der Beek (of "Dawson's Creek" fame), and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
Of course, if you’re a gambler, the smart money is on Lewis, as four former NFL players—Steeler Hines Ward, Emmitt Smith, JenningsandDonald Driver—have all won the coveted Mirrorball trophy.
Get that bet in by September 16thwhen the show debuts.
