It served as the Colts’ corral before it was the Ravens’ nest, but what once went the way of the birds has been returned to the world of the equine. The former Baltimore NFL facility in Owings Mills is now the athletics home of the Stevenson University Mustangs.

The first class mentality extends past the painted lines and into the former front offices of Baltimore’s professional football teams.

Opened in the fall of 2006, the Caves Athletic and Wellness Center, is a modern facility serving the needs of the Stevenson University student-athletes and general student body.

The locker rooms rival the collection of stalls enjoyed by today’s professional athletes, and come fully equipped with the same amenities enjoyed by the pros. Plasma screens and sofas make them a place for athletes to congregate between classes and practice sessions. They also allow coaches to plug in for team meetings and film sessions.
