Last season, Jaason Lewis started for the Ocean Lakes varsity squad. Now a sophomore, expectations for Lewis are high this season. The explosive playmaker recently picked up scholarship offer No.2 and it was a big one.
“I went to Virginia Tech camp a few weeks ago and they offered,” said Lewis. “Coach (Bryan) Stinespring offered me. It felt good to get it – I’ve always wanted that one (scholarship offer). They are going to let me run track and play football.”
Lewis also has an early offer from Old Dominion. However, the 6-foot-3, 220-pound standout has recently gotten mail from Florida State, LSU, Alabama, and UCLA (two handwritten letters). One school has already impressed him.
“I like Virginia Tech a lot right now,” he said. “I like the campus style, the way the coaches’ talked to me, and the fact that they are going to let me do two sports.”
With his season just a few weeks away, Lewis has already thought about possible visits this fall.
“I want to go to UVA, Virginia Tech, and maybe some schools down South,” said Lewis. “Maybe schools like Georgia, Miami, Florida, and Florida State.”
Lake Taylor is extremely talented and everyone believes the Dolphins will have a big season – including Lewis.
“Team-wise, we want to win state (championship),” he said. “Individually, I just want to improve. I want to have more than 500 yards receiving and more than 10 touchdowns.”
Lewis could play a number of positions at the next level. This season, he will play wide receiver and likely get some time at running back. Regardless of where he plays, Lewis has the potential to be one of the top overall prospects in the 2015 class. He also runs the 100 and 200-meter dashes for Ocean Lakes' track team. The Dolphins open their season on August 24 at Tallwood.
