Meet Syracuse’s Class of ’12: WR Ben Lewis – The Guy To Make Us Giddy

The Fizz gushed about him during the summer, saying Ben Lewis would make SU fans giddy. Now, he’s finally an Orange. The big play was a need for SU throughout last season, and Lewis hopes he’s the next one at wideout. He said signing with SU was “a moment he’d dreamed about.”

Lewis fell in love with two things. First was the coaches.

“I went to the summer camps and stuff and it was awesome. I really liked the coaches and they made me feel like family.”

The other thing he loved is Newhouse. Lewis wants to pursue a degree in Broadcast Journalism at Newhouse.

“Syracuse is nationally known for sports broadcasting. After looking at the long list of names who’ve come out of there and work for ESPN and such… I really wanted to go there.”

No mention of the night host on Boston’s #1 station, but we’ll let it slide.

As for next year, Lewis sees himself as a guy who’s going to push other players in practice and might play some on special teams. He also played DE in high school. Let’s see if he can become the next big play threat.
