USA TODAY Sports

Ray Lewis was the last Raven onto the field for the Super Bowl celebration and thanked the people of Baltimore for all their support.

The Baltimore Ravens celebrated their Super Bowl championship with their fans at M&T Bank Stadium on Tuesday, and Ray Lewis got one last chance to thank the city. Lewis was the last Raven onto the field and entered holding the Lombardi Trophy to wild applause. Then, for the last time as a Baltimore Raven, he did his famous squirrel dance.

Lewis was the third featured speaker on stage, after owner Steve Bisciotti and quarterback and Super Bowl XLVII MVP Joe Flacco. Lewis opened by saying there is "no better place on this earth than Baltimore" and spent most of his time on stage thanking the city for their support. Lewis, who will now retire, said there was no other way to end his last ride than with a Super Bowl. Lewis closed his brief remarks by saying that Baltimore was "forever my city."

The Ravens' leader for nearly all of his 17 seasons, Lewis was often the focal point during the celebration on Tuesday in Baltimore.
