Ravens cornerbacks prepare for high school reunion with Chiefs safety

Cornerback Jimmy Smith thought that it was crazy this season to be reunited with his former Colton High (Calif.) teammate Shareece Wright in the Ravens secondary. On Sunday, Smith and Wright will share a field with a third Colton teammate: Chiefs safety Daniel Sorensen.

Smith was a wide receiver and cornerback for Colton, while Wright played running back and defensive back. Sorensen was a safety and the team's punter.

"He comes from a long line of talented football players," Smith said of Sorensen, who has 10 tackles and one sack for the Chiefs this season. "His brother, actually, is Brad Sorensen, who was my high school quarterback, and he was the backup for San Diego a few weeks ago. It's kind of a cool thing.

"We have maybe five players from our high school in the NFL right now. Number one, it's kind of crazy that Shareece is here … but having Danny come play [in Baltimore], it's going to be a unique situation."

Wright was a teammate of Brad Sorensen with the San Diego Chargers, but he and Smith have remained in contact with his younger brother, Daniel, as well.

"It's definitely going to be fun," Wright said. "I've been keeping in touch with him since we left for college."
