Heaving the football downfield toward a waiting group of youngsters, Ravens nose guard Terrence Cody smiled as he picked out his target.
During a sweltering Saturday at Reisterstown Regional Park, Cody was among a group of several Ravens who took part in inside linebacker Jameel McClain's annual football and fitness clinic.
"Oh man, it's special," Cody said. "You don't get nothing else like this. To see these kids smiling and having fun and interacting with everybody, is a blessing.
"It's good being out here even though it's hot. The kids don't care. That's the main reason they're out here is to see us."
