Ex-Ravens lineman Damion Cook dead at 36


Former Ravens offensive lineman and Atholton head coach Damion Cook died at age 36 from a heart attack on Friday.
The Nashville native appeared in 13 games as a reserve for Baltimore from 2002-2004 and also played for Cleveland and Detroit in his NFL career. Cook, a Bethune-Cookman product, earned attention for a humorous impression of All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” series during the summer of 2001.
Cook also played in the Canadian Football League, the United Football League, and the Arena Football League during his professional career.
He is survived by his wife and three children.
