MULTI-SPORT ALL STATE TEXAS LINEBACKER AND BASEBALL SLUGGER, KYLE LEWIS - A LOCK AT THE NEXT LEVEL
LUBBOCK, TX – There aren’t a ton of multi-sport stand outs and certainly it’s even tougher to find All State athletes across multiple sports. Class of 2022, Kyle Lewis is the outlier.
On the Gridiron, Linebacker and play maker, Lewis, has had huge seasons for Lubbock Cooper and even more impressive is the large upside he still has ahead.
“Lewis is a major run stopper with big time speed," said GoMVB Coach Pat Marzo. "He plays linebacker, in my view, because he is the best player on the field and that’s where he can make the most plays for his team. What may go overlooked is the pure one on one coverage skills this player has. Sometimes you just see that big play baller that can change an entire game with one play – that’s Lewis.”
But Lewis also brings that football player speed to the baseball diamond with a 6.48 - 60 yard dash. His numbers were off the charts (.423 batting average with a slugging percentage at .900). Across 34 games, Lewis amassed 8 home runs alongside 39 runs batted in.
“He’s just a complete player. Speed, strong arm, tremendous power, natural outfielder – one of the best I’ve seen at this age,” exclaimed GoMVB coach Brandon Rosenthal.
To top off his athletic achievements, Lewis keenly understands the importance of academics as evidenced by his 4.0 GPA. Clearly a can’t miss prospect for any sharp-eyed college recruiter.
Kyle will shine for a few months on the football field and then he will be back to the diamond where he will attempt to top an amazing junior year.
