Video: Baltimore Ravens' Catholic Football Kicker Sings a Glorious "Ave Maria."

Justin Tucker, a devout Catholic who crosses himself every time he kicks, has been offered jobs as a professional opera singer. Here he sings the popular Catholic hymn by the composer Schubert, a hymn based on the prayer, Hail Mary. “Ave Maria” is Latin for hail Mary.


Wow! This guy could have a career in opera if that football thing doesn’t work out for him.
