Lenox Laser, Inc.  on Feb. 6, 2011,  hosted “Superbowl with an NFL Star” sponsored by SportsPower International.  The “star”? Ray Sydnor!
Ray Sydnor was born in Baltimore and grew up in Baltimore City with his four sisters and parents.  A graduate of Northwestern High School, Ray lettered for three years in football and two years in basketball.  He graduated as a High School All-American football and basketball player and went on to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he received a full scholarship to play football.  During his senior year, he was selected as All-Big Ten Tight End and was subsequently drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers.  He later was picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles and was a member of their Super Bowl team in 1980.
The former All-American football and basketball player and NFL pro was living his dream until life took a turn for the worst when drugs and alcohol ended his prof football career.  In 1998, after watching his life leave a trail of destruction and hurt, Sydnor began his recovery and new life.  He is now a father of six and a national speaker for many sport’s, men’s and youth organizations.
The main event consisted of watching this year’s Super Bowl between the Steelers and the Packers on a huge wide screen TV.  Speeches were then presented by both Sydnor and Bill Alexson, president of SportsPower International and former Chaplain of the Boston Celtics.
