BALTIMORE — A Baltimore woman just won Ravens ticket for the next 20 years.

Lolita Little-Staten has known since mid-December that she was one of six finalists with a chance to win Ravens season tickets for 20 years through the Maryland Lottery’s Ravens second-chance promotion.

The finalists gathered at M&T Bank Stadium Thursday to learn who would win the coveted prize, which includes two club-level tickets and parking to every preseason and regular season home game for the next 20 years.

Prior to the big announcement, the group enjoyed a private tour of the stadium, which culminated in the team locker room. Once there, the finalists were greeted by former Raven Zach Orr and mascot Poe.

The finalists lined up next to a locker covered by black draping, hiding a jersey which was printed with the winner’s name. Orr said a few words, and then, then revealed the jersey in the locker, which simply read, “Lolita”.

“I was too nervous at first to turn around to see who won,” said Lolita. “I’ve never won anything in my life. I’m so excited.”

Lolita, who was accompanied by one of her four brothers, has a positive outlook for the team. When asked what she expected to see over the next 20 seasons, she replied, “I expect Lamar to take us to at least four Super Bowls!”

The six finalists, who were randomly selected from more than 1.3 million entries in this category, each won $10,000 just for being selected.

The other finalists were: Bryant Finklea from Baltimore; William Owens from Aspen Hill; Ansa Riaz from Snow Hill; Linda WalkerKnight from Glyndon; and Randolph Winns from Baltimore.
