Barnstormers Land 2-Time All-Arena DL Mike Lewis

12/19/2012 2:58 PM -
As the 2012 season came to a close, one of the Iowa Barnstormers top priorities was to improve their pass rush. 
Wednesday afternoon, the team took a major step toward accomplishing just that as Head Coach Mike Hohensee
announced that the team has been assigned All-Arena League Defensive Lineman Mike Lewis. The three-year
agreement will keep Lewis a Barnstormer through the 2015 season.
 
Lewis (6-3, 250) is no stranger to Barnstormers fans. The seventh year pro spent his rookie AFL season in 2010 with
the Barnstormers, recording 15 tackles and 2.5 sacks. He has spent the last two seasons with the Utah Blaze, where
he was named to the All-Arena League second team in 2011 and first team in 2012. Over that time period, Lewis
compiled 64.5 tackles, 23 sacks and 9 forced fumbles. More importantly, he led his team to back-to-back 12 win seasons. 
Lewis had a career game last season versus Iowa when he spoiled the Barnstormers home opener with 3 sacks in
a 69-49 Blaze victory. The Adrian College Alumni also spent 3 seasons in af2 (2007-09) where he was one of the league’s
top pass rushers.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
When asked to comment on his latest addition, Hohensee stated, “Mike has been one of the elite pass rushers in the
AFL the past couple of years. He is relentless competitor and possesses a tremendous work ethic that will only
enhance the winning attitude with his teammates. We are excited to have such a dominant player in place for next three
seasons.” Lewis will be among a group of 35 players that will attend the Barnstormers Training Camp this March. He
is the 24th player assigned to Iowa for the 2013 season.
