LAFAYETTE — Levi Lewis has been placed on yet another preseason award watch list.
Lewis has already been named to the Davey O’Brien Award Preseason Watch List and the Maxwell Award Preseason Watch List, making him one of 21 quarterbacks in the nation to be named on all three.
Lewis has also earned second-team preseason honors from both the Lindy’s Sports Preseason All-Sun Belt Teams and Phil Steele’s Preseason All-Sun Belt Conference Teams.
The Baton Rouge native is coming off an impressive junior season in which he started all 14 games, threw for 3,050 yards and 26 touchdowns, both of which set new UL single-season school records.
Lewis led the Ragin’ Cajuns to a historic 11-win season capped with a 27-17 victory over Miami (Ohio) in the 2020 LendingTree Bowl, where Lewis received Most Valuable Player honors.
Lewis enters his final season ranked ninth in program history with 4,012 career passing yards and fourth in total passing touchdowns with 35.
UL is scheduled to open the 2020 season on Saturday, September 5, when it welcomes in-state foe McNeese State to Cajun Field.
