One of the lucky participants bragged about his experience.
“I feel like a Raven,” Tyler Hamilton told WJZ.
The 12-year-old said he would be able to transfer the skills he learned.
“It helps you because I have two games after that and it will help to play for the two games after that,” he said.
Hamilton’s father, Tyrone, said it’s rare to train alongside Ravens players like quarterback Tyler Huntley.

“It’s something new,” Hamilton said of the clinic. “Getting the experience of a professional player is something different.”
The Braitman family sat on the sidelines of the clinic and cheered on their twins from the bleachers.
Their mother, Lauren Braitman, said her sons love playing football.
“They’ve really gotten into it lately,” she said. “They played together outside at home.”
In fact, the boys have started playing football with the Under Armor league and finally have the chance to put their skills to the test.

“To actually be on the Ravens’ field and experience their drills, players and coaches is awesome,” Braitman said.
