Career

Youth and college

Born and raised in Spanish Point, Bermuda, by his mother, Nicole, and father, Tory. Lewis began his footballing career with the Dandy Town Hornets youth setup.[1] Working his way up the academy, Lewis opted to move the United States, where he attended the Berkshire School in Sheffield, Massachusetts. During his freshmen year at Berkshire, Lewis tallied a team-high eight goals and eight assists, which led to a national call up by Bermuda's under-17 national team.[2]

After gradual improvement, Lewis had an explosive senior season, tallying 33 goals. The success led to being named an NSCAA All-American as a senior scored a goal in the High School All-American Game. Lewis was the only player from Massachusetts invited to the game and one of three from New England.[3]

Lewis also spent two seasons with Bermuda Hogges in the USL Premier Development League.[4][5] He also played for Real Boston Rams.

His success at Berkshire landed him a scholarship with Boston College.[1] In his freshmen year with the Eagles, Lewis lead the team with 17 points, and lead the team in assists, with 11. He was also tied for second in goals during the season.[6] Lewis also won the 2013 ACC Men's Soccer Freshman of the Year award.

New York Red Bulls

Ahead of the 2017 MLS SuperDraft, Lewis signed a senior college contract with Major League Soccer. He was selected 17th overall in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft by the New York Red Bulls. Per league policy the terms were not disclosed.[7] On April 1, 2017 Lewis made his professional debut for New York Red Bulls II, scoring the lone goal in a 1-0 victory over Richmond Kickers.[8]

International

Lewis received his first international cap for Bermuda on September 2, 2011. He came on as a 77th-minute substitute for Nahki Wells[9] in a 1-0 loss to Trinidad and Tobago in a World Cup qualifier. As of November 2015, he earned a total of 8 caps, scoring 1 goal. He has represented his country in 5 FIFA World Cup qualification matches.[10]
