Clint Lewis, a member

The Bears took a play out of their scrimmage to thank a 20+ year member of their program, Clint Lewis.

The one constant for the Baylor program since 1995 isn't a player, coach, or admin.  It is Clint Lewis, who has been a part of the Baylor football program for 23 years, and 7 coaches. 

Born with Down Syndrome, Lewis has led the Bears out for each game and being a part of the sidelines.  He became widely known at the Bears upset of Kansas State, dancing with Lache Seastrunk on the sidelines as the Bears upset the top-ranked team in the nation.

Saturday afternoon, the Bears paid thanks, as he came out onto the field at running back, and taking the ball into the endzone for a touchdown.  It was a high moment for the spring game.

John Werner, of the Waco Tribune-Herald, had a great in-depth story on Lewis and his impact on the team over the past two-plus decades. .
