The Louisiana Quarterback Series – 2017 Levi Lewis Scotlandville HS Baton Rouge, LA

You could say that the 2015 football season was a very good year for quarterbacks from the State of Louisiana.  When we consider that the Class of 2016 included names like Shea Patterson IMG Academy, formerly of Calvary Baptist, Lindsey Scott, Jr. Gatorade Player of the Year for Louisiana from Zachary, LA; Keondre Wudtee from Parkway in Bossier City; and Chase Fourcade of Archbishop Rummel in New Orleans, just to name a few, it is easy to say that the list of talented quarterbacks ran deep.

The underclassmen from The Boot only look to add to that list in the coming 2016 football season.  A great group of young and talented quarterbacks will take the field this spring and fall with speed, toughness, and air attacks that will surely excite those who love Louisiana Friday Night Football.

The Louisiana Quarterback Series will highlight these young men.  Some of the names you will already know, others will rise to take their place during the season as the leaders of their respective teams.

The best words to describe Levi Lewis would have to be – perseverance, drive and the will to win.  Lewis led his Scotlandville Hornets team to a 10-2 season in 2015 and to the regional round of the LHSAA 5A Non-Select Playoffs.  His drive and determination to help his team succeed on the field garnered him 5A All-State honors as a junior.

Whether it is his strong arm, his ability to scramble away from would-be tacklers or his powerful running, Lewis is an imposing threat to any defense trying to cover him.  In 2015, Lewis accounted for 2,588 yds (137/216 – 63.4%), 22 TD’s/4 Int’s through the air and 119 carries, 978 yds. and 9 TDs on the ground. Lewis puts in work off the field as well being a student athlete that maintainins a 3.8 GPA (weighted), 3.4 (overall).

He has recently announced offers from Jackson State, Tulane, UL Lafayette, and Iowa along with being recruited by Kent State, Memphis, and Howard, among other schools.
