Ravens Pay Tribute to Mervo’s Elijah Gorham


The Ravens took time to honor Elijah Gorham, both before and after their latest victory.

Gorham was a 17-year-old senior on Mervo High School’s football team who passed away earlier this month after injuries suffered during a game on Sept. 18.

Gorham wore No. 7 and was a playmaking wide receiver. So it was fitting that the Ravens’ playmaking wide receiver, Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, held a No. 7 Ravens jersey aloft as he ran out of the tunnel Sunday during pre-game introductions.

After the game, Ravens President Dick Cass, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott and veteran safety/linebacker Anthony Levine Sr. spent time with Gorham’s mother and presented her with the No. 7 Ravens jersey with his name on the back.
