—-“You definitely have to bring a lot more to the table, and you have to come to work every day and compete. And you’ve got to be on top of your craft. That’s part of the NFL, and I’m just privileged to be here.”—Michael Oher Baltimoresun.com

It will be a new test for Michael Oher who will start at right tackle on Sunday against the Chiefs. Oher is no stranger to struggles in life as it has been well documented. Oher attended over ten different schools and spent time on the street and in many foster homes. After being drafted by the Ravens, Oher was determined to be signed as quickly as possible in order to start practicing with the team. The Ravens coaching staff have been impressed Oher and he played well in preseason.

On Sunday Michael Oher #74 will play as Raven and all will be looking forward to watching him make his first NFL start. Oher attended University of Mississippi ; in his first season he started in ten games and was awarded a first-team freshman All American.
