Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West three-star weakside defensive end Chris Lewis played a big role in something special this past weekend. Lewis helped his team beat Concord De La Salle 7-0 – marking the first shutout of De La Salle in recent memory.
"We were the first team to shut them out in a long, long time," Lewis, who is 6-foot-2 and 237 pounds, said.
"I played pretty well defensively. We all played good on defense to get the shutout. On offense I had five carries for 70 yards, including the only touchdown of the game when I broke a 43-yard run. On defense I had a ton of tackles, but I'm not sure how many."
It doesn't matter because Clovis West won and Lewis, who is ranked as the No. 9 weakside defensive end and the No. 39 player in California is quickly becoming a bigger and bigger target for college coaches.
"I heard from Arizona, Cal-Poly, Cal-Davis, and Fresno State over the past week," he said. "I have offers from UNLV, Boise State and TCU. All of my offers are written.
"I haven't gotten any visits set up yet. Most of the schools are trying to get me signed up to do one, but I haven't yet. I will probably take a visit to Arizona, but that's the only one I am real sure about right now."
Lewis said at this point he doesn't have a favorite.
"All schools are pretty much the same right now," he said. "I'm trying to focus on the season and make sure we have a good season. I don't even have a favorite coach, really. They are all real cool to talk to."
When it comes time to make a decision, Lewis knows what he'll look for in the perfect school.
"I'm looking for a school with a good education - that is the main thing," he said. "Also, just being the right fit for me and my family. Close enough for my family to come watch me play or, at least, watch me on television. After I take my visits I'll make a decision. I want to see what all is out there and everything, then make a decision."
