Tavon Young, Jermaine Lewis, Ty Johnson, Arthur Brown and Kyle Snyder all chimed in on Glenn Clark Radio in October.
"The first game was crazy because I have a good friend that I went to the same high school with that plays for the Bills [in cornerback Ronald Darby]. Everybody was like, 'You have got to get us tickets, bro. We're trying to come; everybody's trying to come -- it's you versus Ron! Oh, this is crazy!' The first game was crazy; everybody is already asking me about the Steelers game [Nov. 6]."
- Ravens rookie cornerback/Maryland native Tavon Young Sept. 26 on handling ticket requests from friends and family
"I changed my life around, really; I just got back focused. I was having concussions and stuff like that at the end of my career. I just didn't like football because, when I was watching, I could feel a hit to my head. When I'm watching, I feel it and cringe."
- Former Ravens and Terps wide receiver Jermaine Lewis Sept. 12 on returning to football as an assistant at St. Frances Academy
"Even though I wasn't recruited by him and many others weren't, there's still that sense of trust. Him doing those actions that make you believe in him -- living in the dorms with us [during camp] and being very emotional. We believe in that, through his actions [and when he talks to us]. We see that he wants the best for us. I think everyone fell in love with that."
- Maryland running back Ty Johnson Sept. 29 on the team buying into new head coach DJ Durkin
"It was sad news. One thing that I appreciate about Clarence [Brooks] was just the impact in his relationship that he built with his players. He was not my coach directly, but just seeing how he would relate and respond to his players and the motivation that he provided and supplied them with -- it was really encouraging for me, as a player, to really see that coach and player relationship. It's just beautiful. A player that has a coach like that, it's just special."
- Jacksonville Jaguars (and former Ravens) linebacker Arthur Brown Sept. 23 on the death of longtime Ravens assistant Clarence Brooks
"If I ever was going to fight [in UFC], I would want to wrestle at the same time. So I don't know if that can be possible or how that would happen. If fighting caused me to not be able to compete in anything [as a wrestler], I wouldn't do it."
- Olympic gold medalist/Carroll County native Kyle Snyder Sept. 30 on his interest in fighting in UFC
