Baltimore native Lydell Henry, who co-founded the Beat the Streets — Baltimore afterschool program that combines amateur wrestling with character development and tutoring for area youth, was recognized as a 2014 Allstate Champion For Good before the Ravens' preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night.
Henry was presented with a special trophy outside of M&T Bank Stadium and honored along with fellow Beat the Streets representatives and students who participate in the mentorship activities.
On Labor Day, Sept. 1, Henry will attend the Allstate Tom Joyner Family Reunion in Orlando, Fla., as a special guest alongside his fellow Champions For Good. The Give It Up For Good campaign urges people to share the good in their community by recognizing the unsung heroes who dedicate themselves to enriching others' lives.
