"I'm close with (Louisiana Tech defensive coordinator) Tommy Spangler. He calls every week and I hope that he'll offer soon. I'm looking forward to that possibility."
DeRidder, which has started the year 3-0, has only allowed 27 points and the southwest Louisiana community is excited about their Dragons.
"Everybody has been at the games," Lewis said. "It feels good to be 3-0. We have everybody looking at us.
"I have 31 tackles so far with three tackles for loss. The first game -- against Natchitoches-Central -- they threw the ball 50 times and I got an interception.
"Last year, I had 120 tackles and an interception. It was a good season for me."
Lewis and the Dragons are heavy favorites this week vs. 0-3 Westlake. The following Friday, the Hooper Trophy will be on the line when DeRidder squares off with U.S. 171 rival Leesville and Levander Liggins.
