Tatum Lewis Profile

Winchester (KY) George Rogers Clark hard hitting safety Tatum Lewis is currently flying under the radar.

"I haven't gotten any offers yet, just a lot of letters right now" Lewis said. "Most of the schools are telling me to get my grades up and play well this year."

Middle Tennessee State, Western Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky and Murray State have all made contact with Tatum to date. The 6-foot-2, 227 pound safety did not attend any summer camps.

"The schools have told me that I am good enough to play on scholarship," Lewis said. "There is some stuff that I need to work on. I need to work on my speed."

With a good senior season, Lewis could see his stock climb, particularly if George Rogers Clark continues to feature him as their marquee player. This past season, the Kentuckian played linebacker on the defensive side and tight end on the offensive side.

"I'm a hard hitter that is a team player," Lewis said. "I work hard. I basically play every position on my team."

Lewis was a tremendous 26 selection after a successful junior campaign
