SpecialityFormer NFL Player; Founder, Oher Foundation

Michael Oher is a former offensive tackle who played in the NFL for eight seasons, primarily with the Baltimore Ravens, Tennessee Titans and Carolina Panthers. While playing for the Ravens, he would lead his team to victory in Super Bowl LXVII.  Oher’s life through his final year of high school in Memphis and first year of college is one of the subjects of Michael Lewis’ 2006 book, The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game, and was featured in the Academy Award-winning 2009 film The Blind Side. The Oher Foundation believes that underprivileged kids between the ages of 8 and 18 years old will have a higher rate of success in attaining higher education, if they are afforded an opportunity to access the essential resources needed to further their efforts in education outside of the school environment.
