Teen's wish made, to announce Ravens' 1st-round draft pick

Duane was drafted by the Ravens with the 10th overall selection in the 1998 NFL Draft and was a starting corner during the Ravens run to their first Superbowl, where he starred in the game with an interception which he returned for a touchdown.

A Maryland teen will have the opportunity to fulfill his dream by announcing the Ravens' first-round pick Thursday in coordination with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the team confirmed Saturday.

Onwuanibe made the news early last week by organizing a drive to donate pajamas to terminally ill children and then made it again when Ravens coach John Harbaugh told him by video at a school assembly that he'd be announcing the Ravens' top pick. "Well, great news. Next week, your wish will be granted in Philadelphia at the draft".

T.J., an eighth grader at McDonogh, who's now undergoing treatment for brain cancer, got a big surprise Friday.

As students cheered, the Ravens' cheerleaders came down the aisles of the auditorium along with Poe, the team mascot.

Onquanibe recently leaned that his cancer is now in remission. Now, Ravens fans will be waiting to hear what name he announces Thursday.

Former Baltimore Ravens cornerback Duane Starks joined Ed and Rob as part of Wayback Wednesday to talk about the four seasons he spent in the Ravens organization. Have a great wish, TJ.
