Any Ravens fans out there?
If so, then you’re going to want to read on!
All Ravens, All the Time!
The Ravens are already off to a pretty good start this season, sitting at 2-1.
We’ve put together this guide here to help you enjoy the remainder of this season, and many seasons in the future.
One of the League’s Most Accomplished Franchises
The Baltimore Ravens entered the league in 1996 when Art Modell decided to move the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore and changed the name.
Since then the Ravens have been one of the most successful franchises.
Baltimore has been home to the Lombardi Trophy twice, both in 2000 and 2012, and have made the playoffs 10 times. Impressive for a franchise just a little over 20 years old.
The Ravens have had many hall of famers play and coach for them over the years, many of them homegrown, including:
- Rod Woodson
- Shannon Sharpe
- Deion Sanders
- Jonathan Ogden
- Ray Lewis
- Ozzie Newsome
- Mike Singletary
Other players like Ed Reed, Steve Smith, and Terrell Suggs will almost certainly be inducted into the hall once they’re eligible, only adding to the Raven’s legacy.
If you’re looking for the ultimate fan experience, then you want a Ravens Roost.
But what is a Ravens Roost?
A Ravens Roost is a place where Ravens fans can come together, celebrate the team, meet new friends, and support good causes.
Ravens Roosts Having Fun
Being in a Ravens Roost is all about having fun, spending time with friends, and watching the Ravens.
A great turnout and fun time at the Saint Patrick's Day
Whether it’s at a party your roost is having, or while tailgating, you’re sure to have a great time.
Roosts Helping Out
Of course Ravens Roosts know how to have a good time, but they also know how to help out their local communities.
This is how the Roost help our community…
Ravens Roosts are about more than just football, they are about community and fellowship. Helping many local charities, the Roosts love giving back to their own local communities.

The Ravens’ History in Westminster
Many know about McDaniel College in Westminster, MD, but what they may not know is its football history.
The Baltimore Ravens had hosted their training camp all the way from their inception in 1996 until 2012.
Many great memories and stories were made during these training camps. Many of them have been documented in the popular HBO show Hard Knocks.

The Ravens are Just on Carroll County’s Doorstep
After leaving McDaniel College, the Ravens didn’t go far. While not exactly in Carroll County anymore, they are but a stone’s throw away in Owings Mills, MD.
Outgrowing the facilities at McDaniel, the Ravens built a brand new complex in Owings Mills, the Under Armour Performance Center.
The Ravens practice at the facility, and spend their off-seasons there as well.
Coach Harbaugh was in rare form at practice 😎😂
