He has also been a camp counselor at Darlington’s football and basketball camps for the past four years and is a member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Outside of athletics, Lewis has taken 16 Honors and AP courses during his high school career. He is a member of the Cum Laude Society, National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta and Sociedad Honoraria Hispanica. He also serves as a day leader in Neville House and is a Tiger Expert and a tour guide for the Admission Office.
