A Ravens Cheerleader died in a motorcycle crash on Friday when he was taking part in a road trip to visit some of his athletes. Infinity All Stars cheerleader coach Dion Bagby recently tried out for the Ravens’ coed cheerleader team and would have started with the franchise this coming fall.
The 27-year-old Bagby from Vienna, Virginia was driving his motorcycle down US 15 on Friday morning when he collided with a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta. The car was turning left from US 15 south when it collided with Bagby’s motorcycle.
The Baltimore Ravens cheerleader was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
Bagby was heading to Woodward, a gymnastics, cheer, and action sports camp where some of his infinity cheerleaders were spending their last day of camp. While Bagby was not required to attend the camp, he wanted to support his athletes.
Bagby had been coaching the Infinity All Stars for two years, and he planned to keep his position while also training with the Baltimore Ravens cheerleader squad.
The Ravens cheerleader actually made the squad in 2012 but decided to stay focused on his coaching job. One year later, the Infinity staff urged Bagby to try out for a second time.
Baltimore Ravens representative Kevin Byrne said of the tragic motorcycle death:
“This is such sad news and the entire Ravens family is in mourning.”
Amy Sue Harrison, the driver of the Volkswagen, was not injured, and no charges were filed as of Saturday afternoon.
Police are still investigating the Baltimore Ravens cheerleaders motorcycle death.
Cheerleader classes were cancelled for the weekend, but the gym doors were open from 1 to 4 pm Saturday and Sunday for anyone who wanted to visit with coaches following the tragic loss of their beloved cheerleader coach.
Our condolence go out to Dion Bagby’s friends, family, and students during their time of loss.
