The Ravens’ running back stopped by the school to congratulate the students for winning the “Finish First with Milk” contest, according to a press release from the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association.

Among the schools from across the country participating in the contest, Meade Middle School had the highest percentage increase in milk consumption—35.6 percent—for the contest period, according to the release.

Rice on healthy choices

Rice gave a speech about making healthy choices to students whose classes had the highest participation rates in the school’s breakfast program, as well as members of the school’s cheerleading and gentleman’s clubs, according to the school system, according to the Anne Arundel County school system. He also entertained questions from the students during the nearly two-hour visit.
