Dakota Lewis Outstanding in Win

Special to Phog.net
Posted Oct 12, 2005

Future Jayhawk Dakota Lewis was impressive on both sides of the ball over the weekend, helping his undefeated Sulphur Bulldogs get another impressive win. More on Lewis' performance inside.

Oklahoma 2-A's top ranked powerhouse Sulphur Bulldogs continued their undefeated season by shutting out a strong offensive team in Plainview, 28 to 0.  Sulphur’s line and younger players continue to improve every week and week 6 was no exception. 

At tailback, Kansas Jayhawk recruit Dakota Lewis had his usual outstanding game.  Lewis ran for 106 yards in just 12 carries while tallying three touchdowns on the night. Lewis' first touchdown came on a 12 yard reception from sophomore quarterback Robert Thomas.

Dakota also rang up two rushing touchdowns,  the first coming from a hard inside run in which he ran over every defender that dared to get in his way.  His second rushing touchdown allowed Lewis the chance to show his outstanding speed as he ran untouched 65 yards to paydirt.

On the defensive side of the ball, Lewis settled in at the middle linebacker position and was dominate as usual.  Dakota pounded on Plainview's running backs for 17 tackles and one fumble recovery.  By the second half, Indian running backs were on the lookout for Lewis’ number 6 jersey every time they reached the line of scrimmage. 

In last week’s action, the Sulphur Bulldogs topped Konawa 41 to 13.  Again, Lewis had a huge game with 12 carries for 106 yards and 3 touchdowns.  On the Defensive side of the ball, Dakota punished Konawa's running backs racking up 11 tackles.  Lewis also had a beautiful interception after dropping back into coverage and showing his phenomenal vertical leap to snag the ball out in front of a crossing receiver.  Dakota barely missed out on his second interception of the night when the ball slipped through his fingertips after knocking it away from a dejected Konawa receiver. 

The Bulldogs currently boast the longest current winning streak in all of Oklahoma 11 man football, and hope to continue their two-year winning streak as they travel to Kingston for another district contest.  Sulphur is working on their second straight state championship season and have not lost a football game since losing in the state finals in 2003.  Lewis has only seen his Bulldogs lose two games (including the state championship game in 2003) in his entire high school career and his working on the schools third state title in four years.

Stay tuned for more updates on Jayhawk recruit, Dakota Lewis.
