Lewis prepares for the Under Armour All-America game

Brookhaven senior linebacker Leo Lewis will have a chance to show his talents in Florida this Friday.

Lewis was selected to play in the 2015 Under Armour All-America game, which will be played in St. Petersburg, Florida at 3 p.m. on ESPN.



“I always wanted to play in the All-America game,” said Lewis. “I have watched it every year. I watched the players like Amari Cooper and Hoover Foster come into the game, and I watched them on Saturday.

“It is my dream to be a part of it, and it is an honor to selected,” continued Lewis. “I always wanted to play at the college level. I want to be a freshmen All American and be on the SEC first team selection for next three years. It is my dream to go pro and take care of my family, especially my little girl.”

Lewis finished his senior year with 76 total tackles, which included 58 solo tackles on the season. Leo will be wearing No. 5 on the white team

We are very excited and proud for Leo to get the opportunity to play in the Under Armour All America All Star Game,” BHS Head Football Coach Tommy Clopton said. “We know that he will represent Brookhaven and Mississippi well.”
