The Jacksonville, Fla., native appeared in 10 games with nine starts at quarterback last season, and he threw for 1,131 yards with six touchdowns and completed 57 percent of his passes (110-of-193). Lewis finished the year with a 108.2 efficiency rating, second on the team with 500 rushing yards on 93 attempts with three scores, and averaged 50.0 yards per game and 5.4 yards per carry.
