Lewis held up high by Boston College

Zeiko Lewis, the Bermuda midfielder, was among those basking in the limelight during Boston College's All Sports Banquet held this month.

The Young Men's Social Club player put another feather in his cap after receiving the Outstanding Scholar-Athlete Award among the freshman class.

Lewis was a clear favourite for the award, having led Boston College last season with 11 assists, which ranked first in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and fourth nationally. His tally of assists was the second most in a single season at Boston College.

For added measure, the grandson of Fred “Pinks” Lewis, the former Young Men's Social Club and PHC Zebras' winger, scored three goals in 18 appearances during his freshman year.

The Outstanding Scholar-Athlete Awards are presented annually to male and female student-athletes from each class for excellence in both the classroom and on the playing field.

The award comes after Lewis was named to the Soccer America All-Freshman First Team in the wake of earning numerous conference honours, including ACC Freshman of the Year, a first for Boston College.

Lewis, 19, was also voted onto the All-ACC Second Team, one of only two freshmen to be named to the first or second team, and the All-ACC Freshman Team.

Boston College finished the regular season with an overall season record of seven wins, nine losses and two draws and reached the quarter-finals of the conference tournament.

Lewis, who also played for the Bermuda Hogges in the Premier Development League, was an integral member of Bermuda's squad that claimed gold at the NatWest Island Games last summer.

He scored twice against Falkland Islands and was also on target in Bermuda's win over Greenland.
