Dion Lewis Bio

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

He first attended Albany High School before transferring to Albany Academy and then later to Blair Academy in Blairstown, N.J where he could better develop his sporting abilities. At Blair, 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 that run, Blair Academy won two Mid-Atlantic Prep League Championships and a New Jersey Prep state title. Lewis himself got named the New Jersey Prep 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.

Also, in track & field, he was a three-year letterman in at Blair Academy, where he competed in sprints (11.09 100m and 23.06 200m), long jump (20’2″) and relays (44.29 4×100).

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

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

His sophomore year was not quite as spectacular as his freshman year but Lewis still managed to carry his team to better heights before choosing 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 15 games, rushing 23 times for 102 yards and one touchdown and catching one 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 later cut by the team in 2014.

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