Our Guest Speakers at the 2018 Banquet:

Benjamin & Kirsten Watson!

Benjamin and Kirsten are members of the Baltimore Ravens family. Ben is a tight end who has proven to be one of the most dependable members of the Ravens offense this year. He has also been named the Ravens’ nominee for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award

“We are proud to recognize Benjamin Watson for the work he does to educate, empower and enrich the lives of those in need. He is a recognized leader in every community he serves and is a shining example of compassion and inspiration. He has helped people not only in many NFL communities, but also in areas all over the world.” 

~Ravens President, Dick Cass

Off the field, Benjamin stays busy with his foundation One More, his growing family, and the NFL Players Association, where he serves on the Executive Committee.  He is also an NFL Spokesman for the All Pro Dad Campaign. In 2015, Watson published his first book, “Under Our Skin: Getting Real About Race- And Getting Free From The Fears and Frustrations That Divide Us”.  In October of 2016, he authored a “Group Conversation Guide” to aid readers’ journey to honest conversation about race, bias, and justice in America. On May 2nd, 2017 Watson released, “The New Dad’s Playbook: Gearing Up for the Biggest Game of Your Life.”

One More serves as an extension of Kirsten and Benjamin as they reach out to the community with faith in God as their foundation. It also allows them to support and partner with those who share their desire to make a positive difference in the world.
