WASHINGTON, December 8, 2013 — Perhaps karma played a role in the Baltimore Ravens’ impressive 29-26 win against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

On Friday, December 6, Ravens punter Sam Koch joined former U.S. Marine Corps Corporal Jeremy Stengal for “Punts for a Purpose.” The campaign, aimed at raising awareness for Wounded Warriors, also supports the Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team. Stengal is the team’s star punter.

Koch is the first NFL punter to participate in Punt for a Purpose. For each of his two punts downed inside the 20-yard line, $100 was donated to the Wounded Warriors.

The Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team regularly faces off against retired NFL legends. To find out more about the campaign or the team, visit:
