Lewis Talks Pirates and More
As the season began for Brennan Lewis he had two things on his mind. Starting off those two goals are to help his team win and then to receive his first official offer. With the two closely relating for the 6-foot-4, 205-pound quarterback he has managed to lead East Carteret (Beaufort, NC) to a 3-0 start. Already eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark in passing yards, Lewis is looking for his recruiting trail to heat up. The East Carteret quarterback said that East Carolina and Old Dominion are his top schools right now. The quarterback is planning to take a visit to ODU this weekend as they host North Carolina State, another school that Lewis has been in contact with. Lewis also plans to revisit East Carolina in the coming weeks when the Pirates play host to Virginia Tech. Without an official offer Lewis feels like the recruiting process has room to grow and hopes it will heat up. “It’s been really good,” Lewis said. “Especially right now with Old Dominion who I’ve gotten to know there coaches, and I’m headed down there this Saturday.” The recruiting process with ECU has changed over time, with ECU picking up a commitment at his position but he still has not counted the Pirates out. “It’s kind of slowed down with ECU because in know they already have a quarterback committed for 2016,” Lewis explained. “But it’s still been pretty good and I like the atmosphere and the coaches. I like how he (Ruffin McNeill) controls his team and the fan base is just crazy.” The quarterback went on to say how he would fit into McNeill’s system, “I believe I would fit in perfect for their air-raid offense, it goes over a lot from what we are doing now in high school so I know I could get the system really well. I believe I can make all the throws that they could.” Lewis has developed a relationship with ECU’s Duane Price throughout the recruiting process. The strong armed quarterback feels like his relationship with the ECU staff is in a good position and they have mutual respect. The three-sport athlete believes that his biggest strengths on the football field include using his strong arm to make any throw on the field. Lewis also said that he can read the defensive coverages and know when to and when not to throw the ball. Even though the process has not gone exactly the way he would hope, the possibility of receiving an offer to extend his football and educational career are enough to keep him optimistic. “It means a lot,” Lewis explained. “A lot of your friends don’t get that opportunity that you’re around every day. Being blessed to have this opportunity is a big deal plus I’ll be one of the few in my family to have ever done this.”
