Torrey Smith helps support Devon Still’s daughter Leah


Former University of Maryland and current Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has been a standout player everywhere he’s been.

But Smith knows he has the opportunity to help make a difference off the field as well.

On Tuesday, the Ravens receiver posted a picture of some Cincinnati Bengals Devon Still jerseys he purchased to help support Still’s 4-year old daughter Leah who is currently battling cancer.

The Bengals orginization has pledged to donate the money raised by the sales of the jerseys to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center to help more children who are battling cancer.

When the Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals meet on the gridiron it’s a fierce competition as both teams are fighting for the AFC North title. That doesn’t mean the players of these division rival teams don’t care about each other. Torrey Smith told The Baltimore Sun it was an easy decision:

"“He’s one of our brothers in this league, and any time I have the opportunity to support him, as well as any of the other kids in the country who are fighting childhood cancer, it’s something that if I can help, I will,” Smith said Wednesday.”"

Smith will look to hand out the jerseys when the Ravens head north for a rematch against the Bengals on October 26. Both Still and Smith share the same agent and have worked out together in the off-season, but said that was not the reason why he decided to help.

"“Even if I didn’t know him, it’s something I would have done,” Smith said. “It’s a great cause. It’s something that, obviously, I can’t personally relate to because it’s his daughter fighting for her life and she’s a very strong young lady. I have a young son, and I can only imagine what it’s like.”"

Devon Still appreciated the support shown from Torrey.

Ravens Nation and Terp Nation are thankful to be represented by a guy who helps make a difference off the field.
