When the Ravens visited Frederick Douglass High School following the riots in Baltimore, wide receiver Michael Campanaro wanted to remain involved and do something to help out the football program.

The River Hill graduate is giving 80 pairs of new Under Armour cleats to the football team on Tuesday night at the high school.

“These kids have been in the middle of a lot of negativity these past few months,” Campanaro said. “After visiting the high school, I talked to a few kids who played ball and just wanted to help out.”

Meanwhile, Campanaro has made quick progress in his recovery from a partially torn quadriceps that sidelined him during the offseason.

Campanaro says he’s on track for training camp. He has been rehabilitating the injury at the Ravens’ training complex five days per week. He has resumed running and is doing cardio workouts three times a day.

The Clarksville native battled hamstring injuries last season that limited him to four games, seven catches, 102 yards and a touchdown after being selected in the seventh round of the NFL draft out of Wake Forest.

Campanaro is expected to compete for an increased role at wide receiver and is the leading candidate to become the Ravens’ punt returner as the replacement for Jacoby Jones.

“As of right now, I feel 100 percent,” said Campanaro, who caught a school-record 229 passes in college and finished with 2,506 career yards and 14 touchdowns. “Working everyday to have a great training camp.”
