After 12-year-old Ayden Lasley of Bel Air was reprimanded at school for wearing a "Ball So Hard University" sweatshirt, Terrell Suggs reached out to the family.
What started as a negative experience ended with an outpouring far beyond one Bel Air boy's imagination. Ayden Lasley, age 12, will be going the Ravens playoff home game on Sunday thanks to player Terrell Suggs. After Ayden and his father Bill took a stand over Southampton Middle School's policy prohibiting a "Ball So Hard University" sweatshirt, their story caught the attention of Suggs, the original "BSHU alum." After Bel Air Patch broke the story, word spread to TSizzle55.com, which sells Suggs' officially licensed apparel. From there, word spread to the player himself. "[Suggs] said, 'Do what you've got to to to get a hold of [Ayden],'" said James Wilhide, who works for the website. Wilhide said Suggs was happy to do something for the …

A 12-year-old Southampton Middle School student was told this week he wasn't allowed to wear a Ravens sweatshirt with the phrase "Ball So Hard University" printed on it, but the school later reversed its decision.
Bill Lasley of Bel Air said all his son wanted to do was show team spirit by wearing his new Baltimore Ravens sweatshirt to school. The boy's excitement quickly changed to confusion when an assistant principal told the 12-year-old he had to remove the sweatshirt or turn it inside out, Lasley said. When Lasley contacted the Southampton Middle School to learn what the problem was, he was told the phrase "Ball So Hard University" which was written on the front of the sweatshirt, sent "mixed messages," Lasley told Patch Thursday afternoon. Lasley said a school representative told him the phrase was banned by a school policy. The school's decision has since been reversed, according to Teri Kranefeld, manager of communications with the school …

Havre de Grace artist Shawn Forton has parlayed his love for drawing and sports into a new venture—portraits of Baltimore's football stars.
When he met Shawn Forton recently, Terrell Suggs wanted to shake Forton's hand. Four times. The Havre de Grace artist's portrait of the Ravens star linebacker was so impressive to Suggs that the candidate for NFL Defensive Player of the Year couldn't stop thanking Forton. And in a continued show of appreciation and awe for Forton's work, Suggs requested 10 copies of the drawing. Forton, a 2002 graduate of Havre de Grace High School and a member of the Susquehanna Hose Company, has always been an incredible artist. Recently, he's taken his love for drawing and sports and combined them in a series of Ravens-related portraits. Ironically, it all started with a commissioned Steelers drawing. "After I was done doing it, I liked how it turned …
