All-State football: Midwest City's Zeke Lewis didn't let size hold him back

ZEKE LEWIS — Another two inches of height would make Midwest City linebacker Zeke Lewis a more sought-after college prospect. But his coach insists someone is “going to get a steal.”

While Flanders — the Big All-City Offensive Player of the Year — was the Bombers' leader on that side, Lewis led the defense.

Huff still believes some Division I school will take a chance on Lewis late in the recruiting process. He could play outside linebacker but realizes his future probably lies at strong safety.

Lewis began taking reps at strong safety in practice during the season, playing the position for the scout defense against the No. 1 offense.

“That's something I wanted to do,” Lewis said. “The coaches liked it because it got the offense better work and it helped me get used to playing there.”

Huff is convinced Lewis could play anywhere on the field.

“If we would've needed him at running back this year, he would've done a great job there for us,” Huff said. “He'd played some there before. But he was so good for us at linebacker that we weren't going to do anything different with him.”
