Dion Lewis Bio

Dion Lewis was born Dion John Lewis on September 27, 1990 in Albany, New York to parents, Leroy and Linda Lewis, who raised him.

He first attended Albany High School before transferring to Albany Academy and later to Blair Academy in Blairstown, New Jersey where he could better develop his athletic abilities. At Blair, the Lewis star began to shine in both athletics and football.

In football, he led his team to a 17-1 record in two seasons. During this run, Blair Academy won two Mid-Atlantic Prep League championships and a New Jersey Prep state title. Lewis himself was named New Jersey Offensive Player of the Year in 2008 for his efforts. He had 88 rushes for 1,243 yards as well as 23 touchdowns that year.

Additionally, in track and field, he was a postman for three years at Blair Academy, where he competed in sprints (11.09 100m and 23.06 200m), long jump (20’2″) and to the relays (44.29 4 × 100).

Lewis was recruited by the University of Pittsburgh in 2009 to play football. In his first 12-game regular season, he had 1,640 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns. His performance in a game against Big East rival Rutgers, where he had 180 rushing yards and two touchdowns, earned him Big East Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors. This followed with a highly rated report on Sports Illustrated magazine as whispers of him being a potential candidate for the Heisman Trophy began to swirl.

At the end of the season, Lewis was named National Rookie of the Year by Sporting News and CBS Sports as well as Offensive Rookie of the Year by College Football News. He was also named Big East Conference Rookie of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year as well as Eastern College Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year.

His sophomore year wasn’t as spectacular as his freshman year, but Lewis still managed to take his team to greater heights before opting to declare for the 2011 NFL Draft, forgoing his junior and senior seasons.

He was selected with the 149th pick in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. In his first season with the Eagles in 2011, Lewis played in 15 games, rushing 23 times for 102 yards and a touchdown and catching a pass for a loss of three yards.

In 2013, he was traded to the Cleveland Browns for linebacker Emmanuel Acho. He, however, missed the entire season due to injury and was subsequently eliminated by the team in 2014.

On December 31, 2014, the New England Patriots signed Lewis as a free agent on a future/reserve contract.
