10 Questions With... Ray Rice 52


Ray Rice has a purpose in the NFL: picking up tons of yards and helping the Ravens make another deep playoff run.

But Rice has goals off the field too. One of the biggest ones: putting a stop to bullying.

“Everyone is affected by bullying," Rice says. "It can damage, change or even end a life and there is no excuse for it – ever. I want to encourage kids to be leaders, not followers, and to reach out to someone who may need a friend. It’s so important to be kind to one another, and I will do my part to say that loud and often.”

Rice is one of the athletes and stars who are teaming up with design online custom t-shirt company CustomInk for their “Be Good to Each Other” campaign. At the bottom of this story you can check out the shirt that Rice himself designed. (If your parents choose to buy one, CustomInk will donate all profits from the sale of custom bullying prevention t-shirts to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center).

6:30 AM

Chocolate, Vanilla, or Strawberry ice cream?
Vanilla.

What was your childhood nickname?
Bruce, but I don’t know why! [laughs].

If you weren’t an athlete, what would you want to do?
I would try and go into acting. I tend to make people laugh.

Why do you wear number 27?
My cousin wore number five, and once I realized that I couldn’t get number five in the league, I tried to do some mathematical arrangement. So 27, you do seven minus two, you get five. I wore number five in high school as well, so I try to get back to five.

My hometown, New Rochelle. I like to go up there and still keep it real.

What do you do on days off?
Play Xbox, get a massage, take care of my body. Do the family thing.

Michael Jordan.

Ray Lewis.

I bought my brother a laptop.
