Over his 15-year NFL career, Birk was a six-time Pro Bowl selection and a two-time All-Pro. Birk helped anchor the Baltimore Ravens’ offensive line to a Super Bowl XLVII win over the San Francisco 49ers before retiring from the NFL in February 2013.

The event, titled “Matt Birk—Faith & Football,” will be on Tuesday, March 19 at 7:00 p.m. inside the Lourdes High School Auditorium.  40 of Birk’s books will be auctioned off for $100 each. Those who purchase a book can personally meet Birk himself.

Online tickets are $25, and tickets at the door will cost $30 (cash or check only). Online tickets can be purchased at lhsmn.booktix.com. All proceeds will benefit the Rochester Catholic Schools Athletic Department.
