Flint Native, Brandon Carr, Playing For The Ravens Next Season
Brandon Carr has had a great career since leaving Carman-Ainsworth, and the next step will take him to Baltimore to play for the Ravens.
Carr was originally drafted by the Chiefs in 2008, then headed to Dallas in 2012. It was announced this week that Carr would be heading to Baltimore for the 2017-18 season, ending a dream run in Dallas. Carr posted a heartfelt message on his Instagram account about his time in Dallas.
Ever since I was a kid I wanted to play for the Dallas Cowboys. Five years ago I was able to make that dream come true and I wore the Star with pride. I am forever grateful! It is now time for me to pursue a new opportunity and continue my NFL career as a Baltimore Raven. I want to thank the Dallas Cowboys organization, the coaching staff, my teammates, and Cowboys nation for an unbelievable ride. The Carr Cares Foundation will continue to serve the Dallas community and help young students reach their full potential! God Bless. -B Carr
Despite turning 31 this year, Carr was given a four year deal by the Ravens. Carr has been amazingly resilient throughout his career.
Carr has started and played in all 144 games of his career so far, and in a league that is as injury prone as the NFL, that is an amazing accomplishment.
Even though Carr has become an NFL superstar, he still keeps himself deeply rooted in Flint. His Carr Cares Foundation has helped many kids in Flint, along with the football camps he has hosted here in his hometown.
Brandon also took part in the Real Men Wear Pink fundraiser this year for the Flint ACS.
