Ex-Raven Sharpe to Black College HOF

The Black College Football Hall of Fame announced Tuesday that former Ravens tight end Shannon Sharpe has been selected for induction next year along with 10 others. The inductees will be honored Feb. 16 at the Loews Hotel in Atlanta. NFL Network's Charles Davis will serve as master of ceremonies. Before going on to win two Super Bowls with the Denver Broncos and one with the Ravens in 2001, Sharpe was a three-time All-Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference selection at Savannah State from 1987 to 1989 and the SIAC Player of the Year in 1987.

More college: Bowie State tight end Khari Lee (Western Tech) and freshman defensive back Curtis Pumphrey (Atholton) were named to the All-Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association first team. Senior wide receiver Douglas McNeil III (New Town), junior defensive lineman Oladimeji Layeni, freshman linebacker Antoine Young and junior defensive back Delante White were chosen to the second team. Lincoln punter Kyle Jaski, an All-Metro first-team selection at Kenwood in 2009, was named to the All-CIAA second team. ... Salisbury senior quarterback Dan Griffin (North Harford) was selected to the D3football.com Team of the Week.

Ravens: Wide receiver-kick returner David Reed returned to practice Monday, coming back from a torn left anterior cruciate ligament suffered last season. However, Reed remains on the physically-unable-to-perform list. He has three weeks to either rejoin the active roster or be placed on injured reserve. Reed recently said he's able to sprint, cut and run routes. "I'm right there," Reed said. "I'm really better than ever. Everything is good."
