Tight end C’yontai Lewis (Alabaster, AL, Kingwood Christian, 6-5, 212) caught a big 33 yard touchdown pass in Kingwood Christian’s 48-13 homecoming rout over Lyman Ward Military Academy. Lewis is known as a star studded athlete for being able to catch footballs but on Saturday night he was catching the eyes of the Kingwood ladies with a polished dance moves.
“We had our homecoming dance on Saturday night,” Lewis said. “I just went there chilling with the ladies. I was the star of the show but I was just chilling looking fresh there.”
Before Lewis cleaned up for the annual dance he sat down to watch his future team the Florida Gators took on the LSU Tigers on Saturday.
“The offensive line wasn’t giving Florida enough time to throw the ball man,” Lewis said. “Ole boy (Kelvin) Taylor running the ball good though. The quarterback just didn’t have enough time but they have some playmakers like (Trey) Burton and (Solomon) Patton. I think they are going to win the East if the OL gives them time.”
When Lewis isn’t out with the ladies of Kingwood Christian or on the gridiron he’s recruiting for Florida and he doesn’t have to look far for his main target.
“I’m just recruiting my cousin Bo (Scarbrough) and Cory (Thomas),” Lewis said. “Cory wants to go wherever I go but he knows that Florida has a lot of players returning on the defensive line and he wants to play early so I don’t know if he’s going to Florida or not.”
Not only is Lewis constantly calling or texting the two recruiting targets he also plans to visit Gainesville with those two guys in tow.
“I’ll be back at Florida for the Florida State me and Cory are going,” Lewis said. “My official is going to be in December when they have the banquet. Me and Bo are going to be taking officials that weekend.”
Despite his commitment to Florida the senior tight end prospect wants to use a few of his five allotted official visits to other schools he’s never seen.
“The FSU/Miami game and the Miami/Virginia Tech game they are going to be my other officials,” Lewis said. “I’m still solid to Florida though, I talk to Florida every day of the week. Coach Brian White emails me before every game and coach Derek Lewis hits me up every weekend.”
