Ray Lewis was born to play football, so much so that you wonder if he'll ever find the joy and satisfaction in the rest of his life that he found on the field.

We've scanned the archives and assembled this collection of Ray Lewis photos, capturing moments -- on and off the field -- from each year of No. 52's storied 17-season career with the Ravens.
